Comments on El Dirigible and question about Uruguayan Cinema
21 January 2007 | by (Bend, Oregon, United States) – See all my reviews

I just want to comment that I agree with el senor who said this film is less about the plot and more about the ambiente, I think he said. Absolutely! This film is a beautiful piece of cinematographic art that makes very little sense in terms of the story, but that carried me away with its images of Montevideo. I happened to watch it for the first time while living in Montevideo, so I recognized many of the locations. I also fell absolutely in love with one of the tracks, i think near the end of the film, swearing to find it and keep it forever. It ended up being La Casa de al Lado by Fernando Cabrera. One of the most beautiful and enchanting songs I have ever heard to date. I lost my recording a few years ago and would love to have it again. Anyhow, this movie is worth watching just for the b&w photography. I wish it were more accessible. I've tried to get it online, but with no luck.

Last thing, what os happening in Uruguayan cinema these days? I left Uruguay in 1997 after living for two years in Tacuarembo with high hopes for Uruguayan cinema, even if in collaboration with portenos or europeans. Por favor, avisame.
