Lucia Seles – Weak Rangers (2022)

The third part of a (so far) tetralogy named “Odio desencadenada” that exists somewhere in the intersection between comedy, melodrama and experimental theatre improvisation.

The action revolves around a tennis club and its owner, Manuel, as well as his employees: a miserable and insecure accountant, and the equally insecure assistant and classic guitar aficionado, Luján. The series begins with Manuel hiring two new employees—his childhood friend Sergio and a extremely aggresive and resentful tennis teacher—and follows the entanglements between these characters, their feelings and, most often than not, their frustration at their inability to properly express them.

Any synopsis beyond this point would only undersell the movie, as its true magic it’s truly difficult to define. Every character is both a cartoonish archetype and a very human portrayal with strongly relatable emotions. The dialogues are almost inconsequential, to the point that they become an experimental use of language, serving as a pure vehicle for emotions and devoid of semantic value. At its highest points, it is completely hilarious and profoundly touching. All of this is underlined by the constant grammar-defying thoughts and observations of the director in the form of subtitles.

It’s hard to overstate how unique, uncompromising and just plain weird Lucia Seles’ vision is.
