Directed by Lucrecia Martel
2001 / 102 mins
Rated R
Programmed by Film Forum 

An astonishing debut film from Argentine writer/director Lucrecia Martel whose Zama was a recent major international success. There are shades of both Buñuel and Pinter in La Ciénaga (The Swamp), a densely atmospheric film whose sensibility balances precariously between black humor and palpable foreboding. Two large families – complete with middle-aged boozers, noisy children, oppressed servants and pets – spend a torpid summer in a faded resort town. Soon the rough-and-tumble domestic situation strains everyone’s nerves and repressed family mysteries are exposed as this long, hot summer threatens to erupt into violence. Graciela Borges plays the presiding matriarch, the first among equals in a brilliant ensemble cast.
