The first sequence in Rodrigo Moreno’s second film might be one of the most beautiful breakups in recent cinema (except for Boris, the dumped one whose errant journey from then on will be the main issue in A Mysterious World). It might sound excessive, but it does irradiate a beauty that expands to the whole film because it is visceral, instinctive, lacerating, like something captured from those corners where the devil –in everyday life, in the cinematographic universe which doesn’t reject but amplifies a moment’s universal echoes– does his thing. Although he seems to be inspired by Eustache’s The Mother and the Whore, Moreno exhales something new into Argentine cinema: a film that is free and completely committed to itself, to its own will of following Boris wherever he goes –as if it was the complementary reverse of The Custodian, the filmmaker’s previous film– and to its ability to laugh, miss, enjoy, and create through situations like the party, the car, the trip, the meeting, the taste for club soda, the jokes with names, the use of a record. A Mysterious World shows that cinema, unlike us, knows what to do with the world, with broken hearts, with, precisely, that mysterious world we live in.
