Welcome back. We hope you had a good Christmas, watched some good films, and are ready for more. We start this year with 1976.
This is not your typical historical drama. It simmers beneath the surface, a slow burn of unease in Pinochet’s Chile. Aline Küppenheim delivers a masterful performance as Carmen, a woman drawn into a dangerous game by her own curiosity. The sun-drenched beaches and seemingly idyllic life hold secrets, whispered warnings, and a constant shadow of fear. The film masterfully evokes a sense of paranoia, where every glance and conversation feels fraught with hidden meaning. It’s a quiet, unsettling portrait of a society on the brink, leaving you pondering the cost of complacency and the courage it takes to step out of line.
