Milena is a rookie actress who aspires to get the leading role in a theater play. But in order to get it she will have to accept some disturbing games proposed by the director that turn her body into an object of desire and possession. As she gets into the character she plays onstage, between rehearsal and rehearsal, they start to sink in trances that connect her to a sinister place where she is held in captivity and sexually exploited by a web of human trafficking. Milena travels from one reality to another without understanding which the true world she inhabits is, while the parallel universes superimpose each other more and more and their borders fade. With this new incursion into horror after his previous film, Still Life, Gabriel Grieco directs and co-writes with Sebastián Rotsein a thrilling tour-de-force in which the topics of American gothic intermingle with elements much closer to home and more everyday, but equally horrifying.
If you google Hypersomnia you'll find out what it means. And the movie revolves around that theme ... something our main character suffers from. It's a weird illness/sickness and it's not the only thing you have to suspend your disbelief from. I read another review who wrote that it's completely detached from reality ... and that's true. It's also something you shouldn't hold against the movie, but something you should cherish.
If not, the movie will feel like torture to you ... no pun intended. I didn't read anything about the movie (except the google search for the title) and so I was kind of surprised of the way it handled things and where it went with the idea it has. It also tries to send a message, which amidst all the violence (and nudity) is a good thing (although some might say it is a bit exploitative) ... Overall decent effort
