La Flor (Part 3)

La Flor (Parte 3)

Directed by Mariano Llinás
Argentina, 2018
Drama
  • Spanish
  • English

Synopsis

Part three of La Flor comprises episodes 4-6 and an end-credit sequence, including a re-filming of Jean Renoir’s Partie de campagne and a final episode based on a 19th-century diary by a British woman who spent years as a prisoner in the Patagonian wilderness.

Our take

Upending the predictability of episodic structure, La Flor reinvents itself with formal and thematic shifts. Part 3 contains a metafiction, a remake of Jean Renoir’s A Day in the Country, and a period piece, but make sure to stick around for the unmissable 38-minute long end credit sequence.

La Flor is not an attempt to redraw the boundaries of storytelling, but rather a creative experiment in rethinking, on a moment-by-moment basis, the nature and capacity of storytelling in a contemporary context.
