La mujer sin cabeza

Lucrecia Martel Argentina, 2008

dAlton Anthony's rating of the film The Headless Woman

Washing the cars. Changing the channels. Making the coffee. Planting the garden. Tending the sick. “The house is full of them. Shhhh! The dead. "They’re leaving now, don’t look at them, ignore them and they’ll leave.I would have preferred modernity. Here you move and everything squeaks.” A brooding look at the ghosts haunting Europe's incestuous diaspora as the world spins out of the past and into the future.
