Product Description

Kept and Dreamless (Las Mantenidas Sin Sueos) – Amazon.com Exclusive

During Argentina's economic crisis of the '90s, nine year-old Eugenia and her mother, Florencia, live a seemingly colorful life surrounded by eclectic neighbors and an offbeat collection of family.

But for Eugenia, who must deal with her mother's dysfunctional and drug-addled lifestyle, life is anything but pleasant in this darkly inspiring story of expectation, acceptance and nontraditional family, led by standout performances from director Vera Fogwill and young actress Luca Snieg.

"This is cinematic practice at its best: whilst exhibiting the social and political problems and gender roles, the film establishes a close connection with its local audiences, but it also achieves its universal aim."
-Fipresci

"Matching style and originality with a refreshing lack of moralizing, 'Kept & Dreamless' keeps the banner of Argentinean independent cinema flying high…" –Variety

Kept and Dreamless is an official selection of the prestigious, award-winning Global Lens Collection presented by the Global Film Initiative. In Spanish with English subtitles.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Review

Matching stylish originality with a refreshing lack of moralizing, this noteworthy feature debut is particularly successful in the conveying a hip, post-modern feminine viewpoint. --Variety

Great Coming of age movie. I saw it a while back and was very pleased with the movie. It is about a mom and her daughter who have reveresed roles. The mom is the one who is very wild, doing drugs and being somewhat of a bohemian, while the daughter is mature for her age. Nudity is in the movie of both actresses. I read about the movie in a guide on Amazon.com titled The Definitive Guide To Girls In Coming Of Age Movies 2015.

This is an interesting film. I enjoyed how the child of this addicted and lost mother was portrayed. The writing is original and fresh.

I was more or less raised to be of use to someone, or something; to have goals, work, not be lazy, etc., and I think that's good advice. I've heard from many sources that my life should be of some service; this movies seems to revolve around people who's philosophies are opposite my own. Even joy and contentment are better when shared and earned.

There's the useless mother who can't stop getting pregnant and running to her mother for help, while her own daughter is surrounded by drugs, other people who have no sense of direction, and who, for the most part, are pretty un-productive and unhappy. Most of the adults deal drugs, use drugs, cheat the gov't to avoid any type labor, living off alimony, welfare, thievery. The young mother has a 9yr old daughter trying to live through and make some sense of all this; the movie ends with her getting her menses. All I can say is Good luck to you, Sweetheart, you're going to need it.

The movie explores and suggests a kind of Beavis and Butthead philosophy and lifestyle, and it appears that's what the characters strive for, but success at failure isn't making any of them happy.

The movie is entertaining if you don't simply stop it from an overwhelming feeling of disgust; it may have something important to say, but if it did I missed it.
