User Reviews

 
In her direction debut, Flávia Castro creates a drama that faces the sorrow guiding itself with materiality flaps.
6 February 2021 | by barbosaarthurSee all my reviews

"Deslembro" evokes a language that gives the possible materialities to its main character memory. The vague details of what she has lived (but also so powerful in its aspects) contrasts with an almost oppressive vacuum, confronting Joana in her present. The familiar dramas, the complexity of the affective memories from childhood and its multiple permeations, the nostalgia, the clash with the real facts, and even the sorrow of what can never be elucidated intermingle in a linear narrative - pervaded by Joana's memory slices - and it all culminates in a perfectly justified melancholy. This delivery of a slightly unsure perspective is combined to the awaken of silenced and numb memories - as pieces of a jigsaw that actually didn't fit (yet). "Deslembro" delivers great potentialities of memory in its sensorial aspects: books, photos, songs, and stories that guide us to the construction of a character and its own story.
