La Flor (Parte 2)

Mariano Llinás / AR, 2018 / 332 min.

The director Mariano Llinás, the actresses from the theatre group Piel de Lava and many others worked for about 10 years on La Flor. With a total length of 868 minutes (including preprogrammed intervals and end credits), this film is undoubtedly monumental. The maker himself says in an interview: "It’s a film like a Christmas tree".

Poster la flor eye filmmuseum

La Flor is really one mega film consisting of six individual films – from mummy B-flick to spy drama. Llinás casts the same four actresses in different roles, creating a masterful homage to cinema itself.

Sometime in the 1980s, in the Argentine pampas, four female spies have to successfully complete “Operation Hercules”. In the morning, a life-and-death confrontation awaits them – but until then we crisscross the world, taking in tangents and prequels. A narrative masterpiece.

Winner of the Hubert Bals Fund Audience Award 2019.
