It runs the year 2010 in Argentina, it is the bicentennial of the May Revolution. During that year, the authorities carried out experimental tests with a new chemical substance and an accident occurred in which hundreds of thousands of people lost their memory and with it their identity.Written by
Argentina's cinema is sadly lacking in sci-fi, so I was surprised when I came across this little gem. La Sonámbula (Sleepwalker for foreign audiences) is a showcase of everything good within the genre: political commentary, dystopia landscapes, a complex plot. The subtle nods to giants in the genre are here and there - from technology similar to that seen in Blade Runner to the Orwellian government that the protagonists are intent to escape. Perhaps the weakest points of the movie are the one- dimensional female lead, accentuated by Viruboff's stiff, mechanical performance, and the script, with lines that for an Argentine would seem forced, if a bit outdated.
