8th December "La Ciénaga" by Lucrecia Martel


The Swamp (2001) by Lucrecia Martel

Chekhov en la Argentina contemporánea. Mecha y Gregorio están en su casa de campo cerca de La Ciénaga con sus hijos adolescentes. Hace calor. Los adultos beben constantemente, Mecha se corta y esto genera un viaje al hospital y la visita de su hijo José. Un primo, Tali, lleva a sus hijos. Los niños por sí mismos, toman el sol en la piscina sucia, el bailan en la ciudad, corren por las colinas con escopetas, conduciendo coches sin licencia. Una de las chicas le encanta Isabel, una criada de la familia constantemente acusada de robar. Madre e hijo, hijo y hermanas, adolescentes e Isabel están en sus respectivas camas y cuartos de baño con una intimidad escalofriante. Sin adultos para prestar atención, ¿quien está en riesgo?


Chekhov in contemporary Argentina. Mecha and Gregorio are at their rundown country place near La Ciénaga with their teen children. It's hot. The adults drink constantly; Mecha cuts herself, engendering a trip to the hospital and a visit from her son José. A cousin, Tali, brings her children. The kids are on their own, sunbathing by the filthy pool, dancing in town, running in the hills with shotguns, driving cars without licenses. One of the teen girls loves Isabel, a family servant constantly accused of stealing. Mother and son, son and sisters, teen and Isabel are in each other's beds and bathrooms with a creepy intimacy. With no adults paying attention, who's at ris?.
