    Mariana (42) is part of that Chilean upper class that takes privilege for granted.

But their affair cracks through the invisible walls that protect her family from the past.

    Press

    A tight, modest tale of moral evasion and rot.

    Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter

    Handsome lensing by Georges Lechaptois (Planetarium) casts a grey sheen over the feature’s boxed-in interiors and sprawling outdoor surroundings alike; heigtening both the narrative’s sense of restriction and its ties with nature.

    Sarah Ward, Screen Daily

    A supremely assured and intriguing sophomore feature.

    Jessica Kiang, Variety

    I switched from documentary to fiction because I wanted to have more freedom... I wanted to shoot what's invisible, atmospherical... the tension.

    Marcela Said graduated in aesthetics from Catholic University in Chile and got a master degrée in Médias at Paris IV La Sorbonne. In 1999 she directs her first documentary, VALPARAISO, produced by Les Films D'Ici, and in 2001, the award-winning documentary I LOVE PINOCHET, produced by Pathe-Doc.
