I saw this film at the Ghent filmfestival 2012. A chef (Roberto) and
his daughter (Alejandra) move to a city where both are new. Their wife
resp. mother has recently died in a car accident, and their move seems
a recipe to get some distance from what happened and an attempt to deal
with their loss. Father and daughter follow their own path to get
settled in their new environment.
We see Roberto starting to work in a restaurant, but his depressive
mood and sudden impatience hinders him from a fruitful working
relationship with co-workers. He quits suddenly, but that solved
nothing and he regrets this hasty decision. We see him later on working
as a chef again. But the remembrance of his loss continues to haunt
him. His depressions and anger are never taken out on his daughter,
Alejandra seems to get along well with her new classmates, and
integrates remarkably fast. That turns around when a film showing her
being drunk and having sex during a party, happens to be published on
Internet. That triggers an unbelievable amount of bullying by her
classmates, often to such an extent that you eagerly want to look away.
But you can't, while the camera is close by and does not let go.
It is difficult to believe that the young players are all amateurs with
no previous experience on stage or film-set. They have a significant
part in the proceedings, be it the collective bullying of Alejandra, or
the collective silence when interrogated by teachers about what is
going on. The boys and the girls play equal roles in the bullying. I
see them showing a very natural way of behaving, even with the camera
The collective mindset, all against one, is not easy to watch. Teachers
nor parent have any idea that worrisome things are going on. You feel
alone with Alejandra. With apparently no one to rescue her, it is all
very disturbing to witness. Teachers are not aware, because these
school kids are too old to need constant supervision, and have a lot of
leeway to fill their own time. The parent (Roberto) is not aware that
anything bad is happening with Alejandra. As a loving daughter she
takes all trouble to shield her father from any bad news, observing his
depressive moods. Not until very very late in the story we see
involvement of teachers and parent.
A few loose ends remain unexplained, maybe only to show Roberto's
depressive mood and nothing else. Best example is that in the beginning
of the film we see that he let a garage fully restore his wife's car
after a crash, to subsequently abandon it somewhere with the keys
inside to continue his journey on foot. Halfway the film we see the
same car wrecked again after a disastrous joy riding. Similar
inconsistencies I have with Roberto's job at a the restaurant where he
works at first, then quits, and later on resumed working without much
explanation. All things considered, these are minor details.
The camera closes in on the story. The situation gets from bad to ugly,
and without anyone on the rescue. I consider this a very strong feature
of this film, letting us watch what happens from very close. You get
involved, willingly or not. I scored a 5 (out of 5) for the audience
award when leaving the theater. In hindsight, though not as bad as
Alejandra, I feel a bit lonely too when seeing that this film ended on
the 38th place for the audience award, in my opinion undeservedly
surpassed by several films with much less qualities.
