So Long Enthusiasm

So Long Enthusiasm (79' 2017)

Vladimir Duran

Axel is a ten year-old who lives with his mother, Margarita, and his three twenty-something sisters in a flat in Montserrat, a once aristocratic Buenos Aires neighborhood, now in decadence. Margarita requests to be locked up in her bedroom as part of a homemade treatment by which she hands her daughters the control over the keys in order to preserve herself from her lack of willpower. Axel and his sisters will play the part of jailers of their own mother in this odd self-preservation agreement. This will be the arrangement between them until Margarita attempts to break it. Axel will then have to decide which of the contradictory orders his mother gives to follow.
