Natalia is a nineteen-year-old novice who reluctantly returns home to say goodbye to her dying father. However, when she meets up with her sister and her friends, she decides instead to travel the jungle in search of mystical plant.
We've been at the launch premier of LUISA and we loved it! Excellent movie! Small, a nice and tight story, in the line of "El Perro" or "Whisky" (other Argentine and Uruguayan movies to watch)
Excellent director (Gonzalo) on his first feature, his shots, his penetrating camera Excellent Argentinean actress Leonor Manso! she puts the film on her shoulder and get a perfect performance along all of it.
The music is totally organic to the film, the timing, the moments, are all perfectly in tune. Made me remind of similar style of our Santaolalla at Brokenback Mountains. It's worth to watch the desperation of a "almost-dead-living" woman that suddenly is taken out of her humdrum, but organized way of everyday living.
It thrills and traps you while engulfing you without even noticing it, with the exact amount of humor.
Very nice portrait of Buenos AIres, from a surface flight and views to it's underground/subway life of street-go-getters, street-thieves and swindlers. Congratulations on this nice movie!
