A young woman wins a 4-day vacation in a hotel in Ostende, a sea resort near Buenos Aires. It is the low season, and she gets to the place alone—her boyfriend will join her a few days later, interrupting this beach-set, intriguing micro-cosmos that might be filled with stories she doesn’t know.

Ulasan kami

Set in an emblematic holidaymakers’ destination since the early XX century, Ostende is both a delightful observational comedy and a minimalistic detective story of Hitchcockian undertones. Laura Citarella’s debut, also produced by the New Argentine Cinema’s Mariano Llinás.

  • PFL's rating of the film Ostende

    "Ostende" is a quietly engrossing thriller which reminded me as much of Haneke in places as of Hitchcock. The film is anchored by a brilliant central performance from Laura Paredes and in showing the unfolding of events exclusively through her protagonist's eyes, director Citarella maintains a sense of mystery that is not even entirely lifted at the end of the movie's memorable final scene.

  • EdieMaas's rating of the film Ostende

    Gah! Moguillansky’s editing is so fun it distracts me from every movie he’s edited. Precociously expressive, like there’s some literal synthesthetic language he’s got some sort of access to; flow itself. The film, as directed by Citarella, stays pretty safely in postmodernism’s shallow end, with its conceptual basis not nearly flushed out enough to support the feature length run-time. Still, not bad. 2.75

  • Loz Loory's rating of the film Ostende

    2.5 I wanted to like this film, as there are so few movies about women traveling alone. Yet it took me 3 viewings to watch the whole thing. I kept falling asleep. There wasn't enough plot to sustain a feature-length movie. If we'd had a "B" story and "C" story, the film might have worked. As it is, the "A" story is too skimpy. Possibly more musical score could have helped, though the diegetic sound was appropriate.

  • saitosouta's rating of the film Ostende

    3.5 Deși există o mulțime de parți pretențioase și neîndemînatice în "Ostende," și elemente interesante ca sunet neliniștitor din off-screen și atmosferă sinistră care face sânge a noastră înghețat. Mai ales, ultima secvență este atît temerar și înspăimîntator încît sunt îngrozit pînă în măduva oaselor // この"Ostende"には思わせぶりで拙い部分も多いが、オフスクリーンからの不愉快な音響や背筋を凍らせる不穏なムードなど興味深い要素もある。特に、大胆で不気味なラストには骨の髄までゾっとさせられた。

  • pesach slabosky's rating of the film Ostende

    This film suffers from a syndrome that afflicts a lot of indy pictures. It's essentially a twenty-minute student film that's been inflated to 80 minutes.

  • Michael Rozek's rating of the film Ostende

    Perhaps a perfect film, with an equally perfect lead performance. Shows that films don't have to be "about"... anything--but, can just "be." Like life. Should have been the model for hundreds of far inferior films made in the last ten years, in its meticulous staying of course and microscopic attention to detail. Stunning in its resonant aftermath...

  • mootz15's rating of the film Ostende

    The Mubi description talks of hitchockian undertones but the whole thing feels like an unapologetic and taut hitchockian pastiche with a delightfully unsettling score. The final scene is both banal and blood-curdling. Another Argentinian pepita de oro.

  • Kevin Matthews's rating of the film Ostende

    Written and directed by Laura Citarella, this stars Laura Paredes enjoying the prize of some free off-peak holiday time at a hotel. Noticing the activities of others in the hotel, she starts to create a scenario in her mind. Entirely fictional? Or does it have some core of truth? Part laze in the sun, part Antonioni-esque look at passive witnesses to something that may or may not be dangerous. A little cracker.
