Monty the Lamb

Monty the Lamb celebrates the Hendon FC, a soccer team with a history of humble glories that was forced to leave what had been its home field for 82 years in 2008. And we say “celebrates” instead of “cries” because the short film features the irresistible chorus of “Soft Like Me” in the background and is starred...

Moomins on the Riviera

Celebrating the re-release of Moomin, Neil Gaiman defined it as “a lost treasure that finally surfaces: one of the sweetest and strangest comic books that have ever been written or drawn. A surreal masterpiece. Truthfully.” The moomins are a bunch of beautiful things (yes, things), a hyper-white species of biped hippos that mix the inci...

Mortadelo y Filemón contra Jimmy El Cachondo

An ultra-violent giant willing to do “that” (don’t ask) to the man who sent him to jail... until a dose of Reversicine persuades him to do his cleaning and shopping. A super villain with little mental health but neutron bombs to spare; who speaks in an Argentine accent and turns even the most simple phrases into palindromes, the m...

Muerte blanca

How should one portray the tragic death of a sergeant and 44 drafted soldiers in the Chilean Andes during a march that concluded their training in 2005? Roberto Collío finds the right and fair resources: he shoots in black and white with a refined plastic work that includes animation and live action footage from different locations around th...

Musarañas

Suffering from agoraphobia, Montse lives confined in an apartment she shares with her younger sister, whom she’s been taking care off since both of them were little. Deep down, Montse is fine with this situation, because it allows her to avoid dealing with many things, including the hostile and oppressive Franquist Spain she lives in. Everyth...

My Secret World. The Story of Sarah Records

Like a secret world for initiated members, Sarah dazzlingly shone between 1...

Nadie especial

Meanwhile, Nadie especial (2013) raises a quechua-speaking voice and laments the new generation’s detachment from rural and Andean life. The uprooting contradicts the identity, and causes its disappearance. Although beautiful, Nadie especial is a hopeless film that cries. And makes us cry too.

Narcisa

Ever since the late Sixties, Narcisa Hirsch elaborated a body of work in Argentina with a wide aesthetic, conceptual, and cinematic range, which very few experimental filmmakers were able to match. She did so at times stretching the relation between the visual and the verbal, at times like a landscape artist hallucinated by pure iconicity, and at o...

There are two constants in Wiseman’s films: the world is organized by institutions –public, private, exciting, repugnant– and, at the same time, said institutions organized by groups of people congregated periodically and interminably in order to keep them afloat (it’s hard to think of a filmmaker with a better eye for recor...

An architectural, urban, sexual film. Or a gay film rebellious against a certain type of real-estate developments.
