lucrecia is always so refined and groundbreaking, that even with nina santa, her minor work, she is irreplaceable, she is the best living director working with sound, has her own distinctive themes, which become clearer with every film she makes, i like the milieu she's showing, the way her characters communicate,frames in form of tableaus, and especially the restrained suspense of her stories + swimming pools
Is this primarily a coming-of-age film? If so, it's one of the more interesting takes on the genre. I found the blending of sexual awakening and spiritual vocation fascinating. The compositions were also interesting.
She does it again. One of my favorite filmmakers. Fuck any "Lolita" type tales....this is the definitive piece I have ever seen exploring this subject sexual taboo in terms of age, religion and repression. Stellar
I found the film absolutely fascinating. There's more going on under the surface than just a coming of age story. All of the main characters in the film are sexually repressed, but this may not necessarily be a bad thing since the alternative are the doctors who are chasing every tail that works at the hotel. The moog musician is able to play music without touching anything tangible; a parallel?
