      Trenque Lauquen: Part I

      Released Apr 21, 2023 2h 8m Drama Mystery & Thriller List
      96% Tomatometer 27 Reviews 71% Audience Score Fewer than 50 Ratings A woman vanishes. Two men take to the road in search of her: they both love her. Why did she leave? Each one of them has his own suspicions, and hides them from the other one who -- mysteriously -- never truly becomes his rival. Neither is right -- but is anyone? This sudden run away becomes the hidden core of a number of fictions that the film delicately weaves together: the secret of the heart of another woman, lost as well, many years ago; the secret of the life of a village in the countryside, governed by a supernatural incident that nobody seems to perceive; the secret of the plains, which never ceases to spread and devour everything, like the shadows that invade the world after the twilight hour.

      Tara Brady Irish Times There are similarities with the mumblecore science fiction of Shane Carruth’s Upstream Colour and The Endless, but Trenque Lauquen daringly stakes out its own spooky terrain. Rated: 5/5 Dec 23, 2023 Full Review Jonathan Romney Financial Times Paredes gives the film a magnetic, if elusive, core, a seemingly fragile but unshakeably intrepid heroine — at once Alice in Wonderland, Holmesian sleuth, and feminist Tintin. Rated: 5/5 Dec 7, 2023 Full Review David Jenkins Little White Lies An extraordinary achievement in both narrative storytelling and thematic originality. Rated: 5/5 Dec 5, 2023 Full Review Eddie Harrison film-authority.com ‘…an absorbing exploration of the connection between myth and reality in a supple world where there’s no scientific way of knowing which is which…describes a subversive world that’s carefully constructed and designed to evade any attempt to define it…’ Rated: 5/5 May 30, 2024 Full Review Walter Chaw Film Freak Central Laura Citarella's indescribable, incandescent two-part saga of obsessive love, monsters, and the end of the world. Jan 4, 2024 Full Review Christopher Machell CineVue Argentinian director Laura Citarella’s Trenque Lauquen is an enigmatic, semi-absurdist puzzle that defies the allure of narrative solution in favour of the liberation of loose ends.
