In a small town of Entre Ríos, a German family is preparing to leave their farm, for reasons that will only be revealed much later. On the last day, the two teenage brothers, Brenda and Lucas, say goodbye to their friends while their mother closes up the house. But that sent-off is far from exposing what affects the characters’ lives and drama in words and events. Going back to the setting and tone of his short film Invernario, Maximiliano Schonfeld eludes the cliché of describing local habits and tales us to a rough world that always show more than what it actually features. The end of adolescence, sexual desire, a cracked notion of family, and class relations are some of the issues the film unfolds without raising its voice or telling us what to think or feel. A major contribution to this opaque realism with an opalescent light is the truth expressed by its non-professional actors, especially Brenda Krütli’s shaded beauty and Lucas Schell’s eyes and rustic gestures.
