Martín Rejtman – Silvia Prieto (1999)

Quote:
A minimalist deadpan comedy involving drifting characters and objects, this film focuses on Silvia Prieto, a rather unexceptional young woman who on her 27th birthday resolves to make some changes in her life — changes that bring out a few eccentricities. When she discovers that there are other women who share her name, she develops a bizarre obsession with the “other” Silvia Prieto, an obsession that involves unraveling the riddle of her own identity. Silvia Prieto is a meditation on what it means, or doesn’t mean, to be yourself. —Anthology Film Archives Read More »

Martín Rejtman – Shakti (2019)

Quote:
Federico, in his mid-20s, lives alone in Buenos Aires. The day his grandmother dies, he decides to part with his girlfriend. He fears hurting her. However, she is laid-back, feisty and not even close to feeling hurt. He begins obsessing over her unexpected reaction—but then he meets someone else. Condensing all the fine irony, absurdist humour, and unassuming warmth that defines Martín Rejtman work into only 19 minutes, Shakti is a delightful minimalist gem. Read More »
