An impressive addition to Chile's youth wave
12 January 2012 | by BBroiSee all my reviews

My nine stars for this movie can't be explained only by cinematographic aspects. The truly amazing part is in opinion rather the way the two young directors put Santiago de Chile in a heartwarming contemporary perspective.

The two young directors, Pablo Solís and Francisca Schweitzer, enjoy playing with many different effects that they learned at the School of Cinema of Chile, from which they graduated shortly before. Besides an interesting cinematography, Paréntesis is characterized by its experimental, impetuous style.

Further, the movie manages to build ideas with images. If you know Chile (and fell in love with it), you will share my enthusiasm. Paréntesis perfectly reflects a new (upper class) generation of Chilenians that grew up in the post dictatorship time, yearning for love and serious relationships, desperate with the loneliness that two decades of autocracy and one of the most pronounced free market systems ever caused.

An impressive addition to Chile's youth wave that was screened at Toronto, Philadelphia and Cannes film festivals.
