In 2009 or so I was on the jury of a South and Latin American film festival here in Montreal. I had about 20 movies to watch in the span of about a week, and the programmer warned me that one of them was a 4.5 hour semi-experimental Argentine feature. Although I love many movies from Argentina, I have to admit I wasn't looking forward to sitting through it.
But from the moment it started, I was absolutely entranced. Told…
I’m a bit embarrassed to confess that the big narrative conceit of this went mostly over my head, and it wasn’t till a friend gave me her take that the whole movie snapped into focus (with a lot of “how did I miss that!”). Think I was too drilled into the film’s discrete moments—which, admittedly, is probably the intention. And the red herrings are manifold. Still, there’s even a whole conversation about the meaning of metaphor so I really have no excuse.
