Storyline

Are we what others see, or are we what we allow others to see? Most likely it is the view of others which delimits our own identity, as a young divorced mother named Julieta convinces herself. This evening is like any other: her two young sons are roughhousing in their cramped apartment. They whoop and shout while their mother makes desperately futile attempts at the computer to concentrate on writing a report for work. Feeling intense pressure, Julieta tries to quiet the conflict but finds it difficult without a partner to help. The tense situation changes unexpectedly when her two-year-old falls and hurts himself. In this story of a mother suspected of hurting her own child, the movie investigates themes of motherhood, guilt, duty, the role of men and women, fathers and mothers....

"Poignant and commendable drama..."
27 May 2012 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Argentine producer and director Anahí Berneri's third feature film which she co-wrote with Sergio Wolf, is an Argentina-France co-production which premiered in the Panorama section at the 60th Berlin International Film Festival in 2010. It was produced by Argentine-Polish screenwriter, producer and director Daniel Burman and Argentine producer Diego Dubcovsky. It tells the story about a hardworking mother named Julietta. One evening when she is at home writing a report and her two adolescent sons are playing, one of them ends up seriously hurt and she has to take him to a hospital. Her son is taken care of at the hospital and Julietta calms down, but her evening reverses when she is accused of abusing her two sons.

Finely and engagingly directed by South American filmmaker Anahí Berneri, this mindful and gripping fictional tale which is mostly narrated from the main character's point of view, draws an invariably moving and realistic portrayal of the hardships a woman has to live through after being accused of having harmed her own child. While notable for it's naturalistic milieu depictions and the fine production design by Taiwan-born Argentine art director and production designer Aili Chen, this character-driven story about how a struggling and loving mother is treated by society, depicts a condensed study of character which incisively captures a woman's afflicting battle to prove that she is not the person she has been judged to be.

This well-paced and emphatically narrated story where the protagonist is turned into a villain for no other reason than being a mother, is impelled and reinforced by it's cogent narrative structure and the heartrending acting performance by Argentine actress Erica Rivas. A poignant and commendable drama which gained the Award of the Argentinean Academy for Best Actress Erica Rivas at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences of Argentina in 2010.
