Family Life


81 minutes · 2017

In this trite Chilean drama, a damaged and destructive man-child (Jorge Becker) reconnects with his bourgeois intellectual cousin (Cristián Carvajal), who impulsively asks him to house-sit while the cousin, his wife, and his daughter are vacationing. You know something is amiss when the protagonist hits on the wife (Blanca Lewin), and after the family have gone, he impersonates the cousin in order to woo a lower-class single mother (Gabriela Arancibia). Nudity and scenes of energetic lovemaking spice up the meager narrative but can't make up for a flat ending. Cristián Jiménez and Alicia Scherson directed. In Spanish with subtitles.
