A Postcard of the Apocalypse That Already Happened, Visconti-Style
15 September 2009 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

'Las Viudas de los Jueves' is a breathtaking drama, that cuts to the bone in its depiction of a world that's crumbling -even though its surfaces are glamorous and everybody keeps smiling... till it's too late.

It feels like Edgar Allan Poe's 'The Masque of the Red Death'-meets-Visconti's 'The Damned'.. but sexier, and -I tremble at the very thought of it- happening as we speak...

Even though it tells a story with a definite location (Argentina) and time frame (the economic crisis that sunk that country in 01), the film paints a bigger canvas -one that sends shivers down the spine in its timeliness. It speaks about the privileged people that deludes themselves, thinking they could keep earning millions while the rest of the world starves. Sounds familiar?

Suspenseful, subtle, resonant. Great director, great DP, great actors.
