Only one thing happens in this film, five minutes in, but we don't see it. The 
rest is a blur: a road by a canal in Argentina, a rainstorm, a senile aunt, a 
nightly car ride, a heroine who keeps drifting into and out of conversations, 
always surrounded by servants, gradually disappearing in a haze that is not 
just a personal condition, amnesia, but quite obviously the constitution of an 
entire society. Political cinema in Latin America (and elsewhere) has always 
been focused on the poor, who are the most obvious subjects, and also the most 
readily available, but it has yet to show us how miserable life is for those 
who are not poor, how precarious day-to-day existence has become for a class 
that has deprived itself of the most basic forms of access to reality. Lucrecia 
Martel's film does precisely that, and it's a good start: a soft-focus prison, 
a haunted house, a series of superimpositions of fragmented geographies and 
discontinuous mental states, and even though the ghosts of the poor (or the 
memories of military dictatorship) are barely present, it's still a horror film.
