Storyline

Lucio Bordenave carries on the Grey lifestyle of an unemployed worker, dedicated to the trade of watchmaking, until in a somewhat mysterious way, his wife is admitted to a Frenopatic Institute. From this point on, the story enters a territory without parameters where reality is confused with the imaginary, sleep with wakefulness, and insanity with lucidity. Written by Alejandro Chomski

best Argentinean film of the year
14 August 2011 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

What starts as a quiet portrait of a family dealing with mental illness suddenly, and almost imperceptibly becomes a science-fiction horror film that is predictable, but fascinating until the end. It's not hard to figure out what exactly happens to Diana, or where the film is going all together, but Asleep in the Sun is so beautifully crafted, you won't care. There are times when the camera makes the audience take the point of view of certain characters in a wonderfully inventive way. And similarly to what David Lynch did in the opening of Mulholland Dr., it takes quite a while before we find out the significance of these moments, and what they mean. Also akin to Mulholland Dr., some of it is up to interpretation. As a period piece, if the term can be used to describe the piece, it's wonderfully set, down to the cars on the street, furniture, hospital equipment. It's beautiful.
