Storyline

Buenos Aires, March 1982. On the streets of the Argentinean capital, people are challenging the military dictatorship. The walls of the school are thick and redoubtable. A secure promise of the guaranteed preservation of the good old days of school routine from anything that may happen outside its walls in the neighbouring streets, in Buenos Aires itself, in the Argentina of 1982. María Teresa is a classroom assistant at that school, an innocent - or maybe just ignorant - mistress of ceremonies, a bystander. She is twenty years old. She started work when it was still summer and Mr. Biasutto, the chief classroom assistant, made quite clear to her at her first interview the sort of attitude she is expected to adopt with students because it would not be an easy task to arrive at what he called 'the optimum surveillance point': Always on the 'qui vive', never missing a thing, but never giving cause for alarm amongst the students. A surveillance which would pick up on everything but would ... Written by Diego Lerman

"Rigorously compounded study of character..."
29 November 2010 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Diego Lerman's third feature film is a tense and aesthetic socio-political fictional drama that takes place in the year of 1982, where the streets are over-flooded by protestants who are opposed to the military dictatorship in Argentina and behind thick, solid walls 21-year-old assistant teacher Marita Teresa is appointed with a secret mission where she has to supervise the students at a school in Buenos Aires and reveal eventual moral offenses.

Director Diego Lerman's adaptation of a novel by Martin Kohan called "Moral Sciences" is a stylistic, minimalistic and rigorously compounded study of character with great pace about a young woman who discovers unknown character trades as she figures as the moral guardian at a secondary school where the teachers are trying to create a society that strongly contrasts the real society that takes place outside of the schools hard frames. Julietta Zylberg gives a sophisticated portrayal of a reserved character in this thematically challenging independent film, and with brilliant filming and cinematography, minimal dialog, a throughout oppressive mood and stringent narrative, Argentinean Diego Lerman has created a dark and chilly psychological thriller-drama with a nation's political revolt as its background, which is narrated from the viewpoint of and plays out inside the mind of the main character who with mixed feelings realizes that she, just as well as her students, have human desires.
