Offbeat Ghost Story

7 months, 1 week ago at Jan 22 14:47
Not to be confused with the 2004 Josh Lucas Dermot Mulroney rural thriller, 2009's "Undertow" is quite simply a delight. It stands as the debut feature of Latin filmmaker Javier Fuentes-León, but luckily his newness to the craft doesn't show. Well-acted, made, and written, "Undertow" takes to the concept of ghostly unrest with a warm, offbeat spirituality.

Offbeat Ghost Story

“Not to be confused with the 2004 Josh Lucas Dermot Mulroney rural thriller, 2009's "Undertow" is quite simply a delight. It stands as the debut feature of Latin filmmaker Javier Fuentes-León, but luckily his newness to the craft doesn't show. Well-acted, made, and written, "Undertow" takes to the concept of ghostly unrest with a warm, offbeat spirituality.

The film takes place in a small Peruvian village where everybody is up everybody else's butt by habit. Not a good place to be gay. So local fisherman Miguel (Cristian Mercado) retreats deeply into the closet, complete with wife and unborn child, while he carries on a steamy but loving affair with the village outcast and artist, Santiago (Manolo Cardona.)

Miguel's wife, Mariela (Tatiana Astengo) is a nice person, and ” read more

Cinema Diary - Vol 4 E4 - May & June 2013 (59 movies items)

" Peru - Spanish Language film The gay themed films tend to get a little old and fall into rather predictable sub-genres; what it takes to be a man, coming out and HIV/health issues. This film isn't that different in that it deals with issues of masculinity and coming out. This would normally be something that I score rather poorly... however this is a heartfelt film and the relationship with the man and the ghost of his lover is sad and tender. It also doesn't hurt that the story is filmed in"
