La comezón del séptimo año

This is the fun story of how Tom Ewell tries to resist the temptation of Marilyn Monroe, and struggles with himself. It is set on very unfavorable conditions for the male lead, even if he tries to appear very decent and married. He’s alone in his New York apartment after sending off his wife and son on vacations. It’s hotter than hell....

La dama de Shangai

It’s been called everything from an outright disaster to ‘the weirdest great movie ever made’. Like The Magnificent Ambersons before it, Welles’ glittering thriller was subject to swingeing studio cuts (up to an hour was sliced from the finished picture). But what remains of The Lady from Shanghai is remarkable enough. Made...

La mujer de los perros

“It’s very difficult to keep the line between the past and the present,” says Little Edie Bouvier Beale in Grey Gardens (1975). Dog Lady is not Grey Gardens and perhaps doesn’t owe a thing to it: they have common features, but for that reason both films repel just like equal charges do. Now, a woman who lives surrounded by a...

La niña de tacones amarillos

Here lies an unclassifiable film, an object that (fortunately) manages to slip away from the canons of supposed good taste and consensus, and finds its own space as a novel of sentimental education set in Tumbayá, Jujuy, an idyllic place whose everyday life altered by the construction of a big hotel. Isabel is a young local girl, a young pri...

La novia de Frankenstein

During the summer, Ivana works for an agency that rents apartments to foreigners. Her task is simple: to welcome tenants, translating the Spanish language to English, and changing dollars for pesos. Ivana, however, is complex, and all that web of translations and exchanges ends up building a world in which reality and fiction, pesos and dollars, lo...

La obra del siglo

A fascinating chronicle of one failure, or maybe several. In the Eighties, the Cuban government –with the assistance and capitals of the extinct Soviet Union– started to build nuclear reactors in the Juraguá region, in the province of Cienfuegos. Then Chernobyl happened, and then the Berlin Wall fell, and then the USSR was gone....

La Once

It’s much easier to talk about young people than about old people,” John Cassavetes used to say. Because old age is not characterized by great adventures, but by the boredom caused by a sedentary life, like a waiting room for a dentist that wears a black tunic and holds a scythe. Maite Alberdi pays no attention to the words of the direc...

La Sapienza

In the film’s seven opening minutes, the eccentric Eugène Green elegantly deploys and condenses the symbolical coordinates of his fifth film: many wide shots of the cathedral that serves as inspiration for the film’s title are accompanied by a choir chant of religious connotations. Next, when receiving an award, the architect pla...

In Ezequiel Acuña’s films, music plays a very important role (as well as young friendship and love, the feelings that are hard to translate into words, the absences that hurt and off-season beaches), so much so that we suspected that him making a film about a rock band was just a matter of time.
