Apnea

The bathroom of a house is the place where Martelli sets her characters: 6 year-old Claire and her Ecuadorian nanny María. With a very precise acting direction and almost no need for dialogue, the action is centered on the bathroom ritual, while the protagonists wait for the arrival of Claire’s mother. The director focuses on a series...

Archie’s Betty

A comic strip as harmless as Archie is easy to mock, even if its middle tone humor, between the absurd and the commonplace, was, to many, a bridge between the puerile and the adult. It’s harder to understand why it was such a huge hit in the US. Gerald Peary is a film critic, a documentarian, and was –and still is– a fan of the re...

Arribeños

Sometimes a space of barely one kilometer can hide a universe of interoceanic adventures and family sagas. In the two blocks of Arribeños street between Juramento and Olazábal, sits what is known as Chinatown, a place that hides the possibility of several parallel universes between its two borders, the ones of the generations of Taiwa...

Así camino

Ronaldo doesn’t walk alone. Rolando knows that, in every rite, an absence holds his hand; he knows that everything he does used to be done as a couple; he knows that memories stare from the photographs. A cup, a glass, a plate; they can only be justified as a pair. Ronaldo knows it, he knows that if he paints her, he will accept that she&rsqu...

Astérix et le domaine des dieux

It’s the year 2015 A.D. Every kid film is crossed by somewhat solemn American franchises and both Happy Meal and Oedipus complexes (ah, the guilt.) All of them? No! The first 3D animated film of Asterix and his friend Obelix (and Dogmatix, of course) adapts the irreducible The Mansions of the Gods to that medium, which has been rather clumsy...

Atomic Heart

This is an Iranian film that will perplex those who are familiar with Iranian cinema, and those who aren’t but have homogenizing fantasies. There’s a car owned by one of the protagonists, and two women friends conversing in it. There’s dialogue about politics, dictators, Argo, and, of course, a game with the different levels of re...

Léa Rinaldi knows how to observe, which is not the same as watching (that’s an action that deserves the category of subgroup) nor registering or filming (a subgroup within the subgroup).
