Manuel Castro Rosas,
Los Indolentes depicts the story of a once rich family of land owners (hacendados) which after being affected by a land reform fall in a downward spiral of self denial, indolence and economical crisis.
Saw it once long time ago on TV in Mexico. The film has such power that the images and behavioral psychology of the main characters persist in my memories even today. The images are mystical such as the ones from Pedro Paramo. The screenplay is sharp and deep in the way it depicts human behavior. Many people that I know present the biased rationality that the lead characters display on this film. The story can draw parallels with the whole psyche of the Mexican society; the believe of having a glorious past (real or imaginary), doomed by external forces, which in turn lead the people to apathy, inaction, low self-esteem, wishful thinking and ultimately to self-destruction. A great film to see, enjoy and study from.
