Region 2 DVD (may not be viewable outside Europe).


A sober portrait of middle-class torpor and decadence, Argentina director Lucrecia Martel’s (The Headless Woman, La niña santa) debut feature offers a glimpse into her country’s dysfunctional class dynamics and tortured race relations.  The film tells the story of two families' summer holiday, spent in a decaying estate in the mountains. Physical details accumulate: the insistent clinking of ice cubes in glasses, the scrape of metal chairs on a concrete patio, people splayed in beds trying to sleep through the humidity.  Before long, the crowded domestic situation in both homes strains the families' nerves, exposing repressed family mysteries, and tensions that threaten to erupt into violence.
