Premier americana

Benavídez is a sculpting teacher married to a beautiful and promising painter. One night, after an argument with her, the man asks his psychiatrist for asylum after leaving his home with a suitcase. But at the doctor’s mansion, he will discover a dark secret.

A grim satire to snobbery and the pretentiousness of the art world, a horror movie with a prestigious therapist as its main monster, a grotesque dramedy in which paintings move as though they were the living dead, a psychological thriller filled with labyrinths. Laura Casabé accentuates the sinister oddness of Samanta Schweblin’s eponymous short story, and the result is a suffocating nightmare, a cursed fable with some brilliant main actors (Norma Aleandro and Jorge Marrale never looked as perverse as they do here) and an outlandish supporting cast as its accomplices. Benavídez’s Case is an imaginative extravaganza, but also the allegory of a recognizable world. ANR
