Venezia75 | Torna a Venezia Pablo Trapero, con il suo "La quietud"
di Andrea Falco

A man’s take on a female universe. Whose point of view do we see these three women from?

La Quietud is mainly the encounter of Mia with her sister Eugenia under the stern look of their mother, Esmeralda. This is the narrative heart of the movie and the way the characters relate to the story of their present and the story of their past, which relates to the past of their country, too. Therefore, the point of view changes depending on who’s looking and what moment they are looking at, whether in the movie or in history. It was a challenge to work from that place, and it was made possible by the compromise and talent of Martina, Bérénice, and Martina.

 

How do our life experiences change the way we look? And how does it show in a movie?

The experiences we have in life change completely the way we interpret the world, though this is also true of movies. Movies also change the way we see and interpret what we see. Naturally, we are always the same person in front of all those experiences, but in turn, it is those experiences that change who we are. Cinema is a way to show, to celebrate, and to analyse situations and possibilities for change. Cinema gives us the possibility to live lives that are not our own, to discover stories that may be opposed to ours. The combination between what a movie can give us before, after, and the screening makes us persons in constant change. With some luck, we are then able to change things that we ignored before.

 

Personal trauma and dictatorship terrorizing a country. Is La Quietud, the country house, the embodiment of either? Or both?

La Quietud (The Quietude) is a slightly surrealist journey between the present of those characters and their way to connect to the past. And within that past, the roots of a dark and violent history of our country. La Quietud, the country estate, is the place where those stories cross each other and where both present and past collapse. There are moments when the effort that the characters make to not see and not confront this past is contrasted by the violence of past history, and the latent violence of the characters’ intimacy.
