The debut feature of Argentinian filmmaker Lucrecia Martel is a harsh portrait of middle-class life in a small provincial town in northern Argentina. The film portrays the creepily dysfunctional families of two sisters, Tali (Mercedes Moran) and Mecha (Graciela Borges) as they approach the sticky end of a long, hot summer. Against the unspoken backdrop of a country ravaged by political, social and financial turpitude, the characters anaesthetise themselves with sex, alcohol and thoughtless, self-indulgent behaviour.
