Four characters lying in the grass evoke Manet’s famous painting. In this homage to silent film, Raúl Perrone inquires into the possibilities of desire.

What is perhaps Perrone’s most radical enterprise is also one of his most beautiful and elusive films. A painting by Manet is the background for the characters in the first scene, as though the painted creatures came to life and became independent in an act of rebellion and, also, perplexity. If the film seems to oscillate between notions of freedom, veiled desire and gentle love mounted on a dispensary of images and attitudes form late-19 th century paintings, the way sound is used, the close-ups and the abrupt cuts refer to forgotten vanguards Perrone goes back to with the perseverance of an alchemist. The beauty of the colors, the painful pantomime of the actors and the display of amazement and naiveté in Hierba suggest that the director’s mastery is inexhaustible. DO
