Dir. Lucrecia Martel
In Spanish with English subtitles
Rating: [M] Violence & nudity.
Genres: Drama

Topics: Period - 1700s.


“The frustrating nine-year wait for new material from Martel has done nothing to blunt her exquisite, inventive command of sound and image, nor her knack for subtly violent exposure of social and racial prejudice on the upper rungs of the class ladder.”~Variety

Aroview: Argentinian period drama demonstrating the remarkable film making talents of director Lucrecia Martel (THE HEADLESS WOMAN). A Spanish officer at a remote outpost in Argentina longs to be reassigned to Buenos Aires, and experiences the humiliations and microagressions of colonialism and class dynamics at every turn. A captivating sensory overload, based on the novel by Antonio Di Benedetto.
