Drama
This Argentinean drama, about a group of privileged girls wrestling with their first glimpses of adulthood, appropriates the Hungarian title of Bartók's opera Bluebeard's Castle but shares little in common with the work. Director Gastón Solnicki uses some of the opera's compositions to lend gravity to his subjects, whose mundane struggles range from disinterest in school to disenchantment with menial labor to amorphous ennui. His formal, minimalist approach produces some haunting imagery: the girls are more like artworks than people, especially when shot against the imposing architecture of Buenos Aires and Punta del Este, Uruguay. Eating, brooding, and sunbathing, they seem frustratingly mysterious—even to themselves. In Spanish with subtitles.
