Pudor is about intimacy, desires, obsessions, secrets and fears that we keep hidden, even from those we love most. The characters in this story are a man who is going to die, a woman who receives anonymous erotic notes, an older man who is offered a last chance at falling in love, a teenager struggling to handle the doubts generated by puberty and a small boy who sees ghosts. As is the case in many families, in spite of living together, all the characters in Pudor are alone.Written by
This is the first movie that I see from Tristan Ulloa, whom I respect very much as an actor. I have not read Rocagliolo's book, which the film is adapted from. The movie is well directed and actors perform OK -this is Ulloa's core -but the plot is too tragic. Opens many stories at the same time, in the same family -and that could happen-, but trying to tell many topics the movie ends not telling a SINGLE one that is . Fidelity, sex, puberty, child molesting, cancer, are all topics intended to be told, but no one is finally developed.
I was very disappointed with the plot, but Ullos showed that he learned a lot of visual language from acting, so I hope next time he gets the right story to tell.
