Lucrecia Martel / AR, ES, FR, JP, 2001 / 103 min.
This cinematic wonder by Lucrecia Martel chronicles the disintegration of a wealthy family: red wine binges, murky swimming pools, spectral grandmothers, girl crushes and mad dogs. A ominous and sweltering debut that gets deep under the skin.
A ramshackle family in the small provincial town of Salta in Argentina is the perfect vehicle for director Martel’s sultry film about class differences, nature, sexuality, political unrest and stagnation.
