Matías Piñeiro – Rosalinda (2011)

Two different rhythms in the same body. The first one of an actress and the second that of his character: Luisa and Rosalinda share the same body but not the same rhythm. One afternoon in the Delta del Tigre, on the outskirts of Buenos Aires, a group of actors meet to rehearse the comedy Como les guste, by William Shakespeare. During this day, love rages and the roles between actress and character are confused between the enjoyment of artifice and the anguish of the uncertain. Read More »

Victor returns to Buenos Aires after a stay in Mexico for his father’s death to prepare a radio production of “Love’s Labour’s Lost.” Reuniting with his repertory, he finds himself sorting out complicated entanglements with girlfriend Paula, sometime lover Ana, and departed actress Natalia, as well as his muddled relations with the constellation of friends involved with the project.

An intimate work that takes characters and viewers alike into dizzying realms of possibility, The Princess of France is the most ambitious film yet from one of world cinema’s brightest young talents, a cumulatively thrilling experience.

Matías Piñeiro – Todos mienten AKA They All Lie (2009)

Quote:
A group of girls and boys in their twenties settle in a country house that seems completely isolated from civilization. One of them writes a novel while the others try to become a gang and prepare a robbery; some fall in love, or seem to be, or believe (or say) they are in love. But these two, three, ten plot lines unfold from what the characters hide or just don’t know, connecting the writing of the novel and the forming of the gang, and the past of two of the characters with that of the house, and of those who perhaps were the two most bitter enemies of nineteenth century Argentine history… With a sense of humor and play that is both the character’s and the film’s, Todos mienten superimposes plot lines as if it were a tapestry from which a part is constantly hidden, revealing it later and changing its meaning, by means of a complot of specialists in pretense that asks the audience to become an accomplice. Brilliant, vital, with an extraordinary depuration and economy of film resources that makes systematic long takes not seem like a prison, but the result of a necessity, Todos mienten is the joy of cinema in its purest form. –BAFICI Read More »
