Storyline

Feature film broadcast in 4 parts. "La Flor" robs the cinema in six episodes. Each episode corresponds to a cinematographic genre. The first is a B-series, as the Americans used to do. The second is a musical melodrama with a hint of mystery. The third is a spy movie. The fourth is an abyss of cinema. The fifth revisits an old French film. The sixth speaks of captive women in the 19th century. My all forms "La Flor". These six episodes, these six genres have one thing in common: their four actresses. From one episode to another, "La Flor" changes radically universe, and each actress moves from one world to another, from one fiction to another, from one job to another, as in a masked ball. It is the actresses who advance the story, it is they too that as and when the film reveals. At the end of the story, at the end of the film, all these images will eventually draw up their four portraits. Written by ARP Sélection

Pointless, pretentious and boring
10 April 2019 | by FrenchEddieFelsonSee all my reviews

Ô miracle, I managed to see the four opuses. Superb exercise of obstinacy, perseverance and self-denial, because, frankly, I severely fought against boredom and even sleep.

Pros: the four main actresses Elisa Carricajo, Valeria Correa, Pilar Gamboa and Laura Paredes are remarkable. With a special mention for the scene during which Pilar Gamboa is of an incredible verbal violence, on the phone, summoning the distant interlocutor to choose sides. She really scared me! And Elisa Carricajo is irresistibly gorgeous.

Cons: this movie is a huge labyrinth and, when stuck in a dead end, you are teleported to another place, without understanding how or why. I was naively hoping that the fourth and final opus would complete the three previous ones and then offer a global picture for this endless work. In vain! What is the interest of this film for a viewer? Especially the last opus which is the worst of all. I objectively admit that some scenes are worthy of interest, about 40/60 minutes versus a vertiginous total of 800! About 5% of the film approximately ...

A posteriori, I did not understand at all the short speech of the director Mariano Llinás who tries to explain, at the beginning of the first opus, the choice of the name La Flor and the drawing on the poster which would be closely related to the structure of the film itself, theoretically speaking. Honestly, why a flower? Why not consider a dog with 5 legs, 1/2 tail and 1 head, or an ice cream with 6 scoops of 6 distinct flavors and whipped cream, or quite simply an empty poster? Mariano Llinás seriously needs to stop smoking hash and hiding himself behind a facade of a two-penny poet. This film was even presented at the festival of Biarritz (south of France) dedicated to Latin America, in competition with the masterpiece La noche de 12 años (2018) and the excellent Pájaros de verano (2018). The Biarrots should definitely learn to sorting out the wheat from the chavs. Anyway, if you are an insomniac and are looking for a sleeping pill, La Flor is the solution, even if it's hardly swallow-able.
