film synopsis

Festival favorite, Argentine writer/director Pablo Trapero reunites Academy Award® nominee Bérénice Bejo, Martina Gusman (his wife) and Edgar Ramírez in the follow up to his 2016 hit The Clan. Centered on three women, his new family drama with a political dimension sees Eugenia (Bejo), who has been living in France for years, reunite with her mother Esmeralda and younger sister Mia (Gusman) on the family's seemingly peaceful ranch, La Quietud. As the father's health rapidly deteriorates, the tranquility of the setting quickly gets overshadowed when buried tensions come back to light and the consequences of a dark family past affect the present more than ever. Bejo and Gusman, whose uncanny resemblance is unsettling, make the film all the more captivating with their fascinating and troubling sister relationship. Years and an ocean apart, hidden feelings and unsaid things, have not weakened their bond and intense intimacy as both look to the other to feel complete.

In Competition for the CV Cine Award.
