It could represent a dessapointment when you expect a clear, precise, mind twisting film about a real delicate subject. But it is , first, a correct movie, using the suggestion as basic tool for a not comfortable conflict, love, seduction and temptation story. A teacher. And his student. A night and a mistake based on lie. And a powerful kick to put all elements in the right order. "Ausente" is just a beautiful film. Not a revelation, not the film who can provoke revolutions. But a honest story who seems endless because it is the only reasonable way for give this sort of story. So, a beautiful film.
