51th Directors’ Fortnight May 15-25, 2019

Influencia (La)

Fortnight 2007, Feature film, 1h23

Synopsis

This is the story of a disoriented and vulnerable woman, overburdened with daily life problems and more: her belongings are impounded, her cosmetics shop has been closed down and her children’s future is unknown. The children’s vitality draws a sharp contrast against the apathy shown by their mother, who slowly plunges into a deep depression. The kids, becoming aware that she lacks the necessary strength and maturity to effectively face these problems, are forced to adopt adult attitudes.
