The Argentine coast has some characteristics that are hard to translate: tourist attractions, the everyday pace, the personality of its inhabitants and urban identity. Lucía Ferreyra’s first film, a feature based on a short, traces line after line the skeleton of one of those coastal to...

One of the lesser known films of Murnau: It’s a men’s world, but –as often– with a femme fatale in its center; a melodrama of guilt and treason unfolds itself in flashbacks. All is atmosphere: Like in a gothic tale, the stormy weather mirrors the emotional state of people; th...
