An audience submerged

It's impossible not to love Mercedes Moran. Familia sumergida carries a topic which has interested dozens of Argentinian directors in the past twenty years, but this time, in my opinion, very well executed. Involved in the cotidianity of life, almost all the movie happens inside a disorganized and greyish apartment of Capital Federal. The loss of her sister desequilibrates Marcela, who is constantly in a game of looking for something. The death of Rina disbalances her feelings, and finds opposition with her son and daughters, whose lives are not affected by the absence of their aunt. The movie also brings about the idea of the loss of the node in a family, waking up the ghosts. How much we should know about our family? Marcela is psychologically chased by the presence of old members of her genealogy. She needs to escape and finds someone, who was also in the middle of some kind of personal grief. They are both temporarily lost. Loved the theatrical elements. Good movie.
