Product Description

Marcia, a lonely lingerie salesclerk in Buenos Aries, dreams of escaping her dreary life. One day she is propositioned by a pair of girls named Lenin and Mao. When she resists, they kidnap her, steal a taxi, and go looking for the beach. Marcia is a little frightened - but also a little excited. A sexy road movie shot through with a raw freshness reminiscent of early Godard or Jarmusch, Suddenly is "the sort of modestly scaled movie that feels like a gift!" (Los Angeles Times)

pitch-perfect tale of power, sex and friendship, with suspense piled on! --Chicago Tribune

Outrageous, funny and hip! A delightfully unpredictable sleeper! --Variety

A fantastic debut with attitude to spare. Not to be missed! --San Francisco Examiner

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is one of those movies that I always think after watching, "I know exactly how I could redo that movie to make it better!"

I'm going to give the benefit of the doubt to the director and screenwriter, Diego Lerman, who adapted his movie from a novel that I have not read. It is his first "feature" film. It has some non-professional actors and actresses, and is made on a low budget in B&W. Boy, does it show!

SPOILER (DO NOT READ THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPH IF YOU WANT TO BE SURPISED!)

The narrative is pretty straight forward: A chubby girl, Marcia (Tatiana Saphir), with self-esteem issues is confronted by two "street urchin"-type girls (lesbians, more or less) who call themselves Mao and Lenin (Carla Crespo and Veronica Hassan) who have "issues" themselves. Mao professes love and the desire to, not to quote the raunchy dialogue, have lesbian sex with Marcia. They take her to the sea (somewhere Marcia has never been) and then to Lenin's great-aunt's house in another town. Her aunt, played by Beatriz Thibaudin, is a sort of old hippie, who has 2 boarders: a teacher/painter/odd jobber (Maria Merlino) and a biology student (Marcos Ferrante). To make a long narrative short, Marcia sleeps with Mao, the aunt and Lenin revisit their past, Mao goes with the biology student, and Lenin returns to Buenos Aires with Marcia.

(OKAY, NOW YOU RESUME READING)

The film is shot in, what seems to be) ISO 800 and 1600 B&W film stock. The entire movie comes across as a student thesis film, with character studies trumping narrative. It really doesn't balance well, even though I really wanted it to. The narrative seems to be about Marcia, but rolls over to Lenin, then back to Marcia, so the viewer is constantly negotiating who they are supposed to follow.
