Ever since the recent death of her sister Rina, Marcela (a fabulous Mercedes Morán) stumbles around her Buenos Aires apartment and her family in a perpetual state of mental haze, gradually losing grip on any sense of reality, lost in elliptical conversations with deceased relatives. Marcela’s trance-like state is beautifully evoked through the fragmented narrative and unexpected sound design as well as the gossamer, light-filtered, cinematography. María Alché’s A FAMILY SUBMERGED is a lush, poetic, and tantalizing debut feature that establishes Alché as a director to watch.

In Spanish with English subtitles.
