Silvia leads a life of quiet desperation, working long hours in a factory and taking care of her pain-racked, bedridden mother, with whom she constantly quarrels. The episodic structure of this 2002 Uruguayan drama makes it feel as if nothing is happening, until it becomes abruptly clear that a melodramatic plot twist has been lurking in the details. Director Aldo Garay reinforces the bleakness of the situation with squalid imagery; the oddly flat presentation of dramatic events unsettles without ever quite satisfying. In Spanish with subtitles. 70 min.
