Our take

Love letters secreted in library books spark an epistolary mystery in this playful Borgesian epic from Argentine filmmaker Laura Citarella. Cowritten by its star Laura Paredes (The Delinquents), Trenque Lauquen is a cinematic matryoshka doll hewn from structuring absences and literary obsession.
