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
Majestuosa y delicada como una pieza de museo, "La Niña Santa" quizás peque de un cierto preciosismo de vitrina que parece atentar contra su salud, pero es en algunos pequeños rasgos de suciedad (rasgos que son la clave del cine de Lucrecia), donde se puede la magnitud de una obra cuya resonancia se acrecienta con los años. Una estatua a punto de estallar.
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?
