It’s a shame. Chela (Brun) and Chiquita (Irun) are down on their luck, when money’s so short what can you possibly do? They both come from wealthy families, so they start to sell the possessions they’ve inherited, but it’s still not enough. Chiquita’s solution goes awry, and Chela has to find another way to make ends meet and move towards the light. A film about the fragility of women’s financial security in a male-dominated society and the need to find inner resources. A sympathetically observed slice of social realism, as a class of Paraguayan women lose their wealth and status and learn to cope with change as the highly stratified society they knew rapidly fades. Martinessi directs with restraint, sensitivity and humour and what results is a film that will stay with you. A rare cinematic insight into Paraguayan life and a film that critics and audiences have loved.
Paraguayan director Marcelo Martinessi strikes an exquisitely melancholic note with his female-centric debut feature, starring an impressive Ana Brun as a woman facing a disturbingly uncertain future.’ Maria Delgado, Sight&Sound
