Las Meninas (2008)

Sobre o filme

The film traces the life of a family of four living in the suburbs in an ancient Galician villa. The interiors mirror fragments of some kind of art installation rather than a real home and, at the same time, evoke a vague, distant memory... The character who, with a sense of cruel urgency, agitates the virtually immobile storyline is the 30-year-old son of aging parents and brother of an adult sister. Suffering from asthma and eczema since childhood, he terrorises his infinitely tolerant family and drives them into a hermetic world of endless rituals : for them a refuge from his whims and recurring fits… The film resembles the scattered pieces of a beautiful puzzle which the viewer can assemble to form his own final picture. Ihor Podolchak characterises his film as a work which proves that even a record of everyday routine can capture the nature of intellect and the human psyche.
