Lucia and Daniel have three children: Ezequiel, who lives in Spain, Jeremias, and their youngest daughter Meme. Lucía, a very pretentious mother, believes she controls everything in accordance with the requirements of the typical middle-class Argentinean way of life; she doesn't see that under her own roof Jeremias and Meme have a secret relationship. Ezequiel, the eldest brother, arrives from Spain to get married under his parents' pride-filled gaze. His presence, and that of Montse, his fiancée, is going to reveal the fragility of the seemingly perfect order of things. Love develops into sin, but its power resists set moral standards.
Yes, some will say this movie is disturbing. That's not always a bad thing in a film. Although I did find it somewhat disturbing myself, I also found it very intriguing and enjoyable, party because it WAS disturbing.
The acting is great and the story is like nothing I've ever seen before. The camerawork is wonderful as well. There are some great shots in here. Lately I've been enjoying a lot of Argentinian films I have noticed. I didn't consciously seek them out, but I find myself stumbling upon one gem after another. This is one of them. They make some great movies. Recommend.
