Movie Info

A portrait of several young women at the threshold of adulthood, feeling their way through various crises born of the insular comforts of class privilege. Obliquely inspired by Bela Bartok's sole opera, Bluebeard's Castle is radically transposed within the alternating milieux of work and repose in Buenos Aires and Punta del Este.

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (2)

An exercise in constructing a feature almost entirely from artfully composed, incident-lite tableaus.

Kékszakállú works best as pure cinema, mostly divorced from narrative; some of its most memorable moments don't even really contribute to the vague theme that gradually emerges.

Kékszakállú is a film whose every moment is the product of a nervous gamble, a young person's search for a reason for being, and thus a beguiling mirror of its heroine's journey.

A constant barrage of intricately composed images put forth to be dissected and enjoyed.
