Movie Info

In an effort to reconstruct the abduction and murder of her own parents, this highly personal pseudo-documentary from director Albertina Carri endeavors to illustrate the brutality of Argentina's military dictatorship of the 1970s. Carri is no stranger to experimental techniques -- her short film Barbie Can Be Sad, Too was narrated entirely by dolls -- and Los Rubios is equally unconventional.

Carri's refusal to suffer, to confront her own emptiness, is what finally renders The Blonds jejune, nihilistic and utterly unsatisfying.

The result can be at times too theoretical, too personal and too opaque, but it's a consistently challenging work that's often sharply poignant.

Magnanimous yet slapdash, The Blonds records Carri's effort to satiate her-and her nation's-parentless identity.
