Pablo LarraínMariana Di Girolamo, Gael García Bernal, Paola Giannini

Chile / 2019 / Spanish / 102 minutes / DCP / Color

From the metaphysical dialogue of Neruda (41st) to the lyrical portrait of Jackie (2016), Larraín continues his experimentalism in this psychological thriller that is, simultaneously, a visually expressionistic hymn to female liberation. Taking “playing with fire” to new extremes, the stylised drama fixates on Ema, a reggaeton dancer of ferocious beauty and indomitable free will, as she sets out on an odyssey to resolve a problematic adoption, which throws her artistic life and her marriage into crisis. In competition, Venice Film Festival.
