Encina's film, balanced exquisitely between the concrete and the abstract, between the specific and the absolute, is a quietly devastating indictment of the eternal waste of youth as cannon fodder in this and all wars.
That Paraguayan Hammock happens to be one of the few features to emerge from Paraguay in recent decades in no way diminishes its rarity.
Paraguayan Hammock is like a piece of music that improves with familiarity.
Squarely in the vein of Mozart's Requiem.
A frustratingly slow drama.
Dragging along in a tedious rhythm of long-take, big-talk, Hamaca Paraguaya is a cinematic bust.
The thrust of this film is faint but steady. At times, you are really looking for something in the long-holding shot, and it's just not there. The point? Not to look too hard.
Encina's idea-driven artistry belies the quiet integrity and poetry of the script, keeping audiences at a rather clinical distance from the lives of her characters.
That such a simple film makes you want the answers [to the questions] tells of the talent of new filmmaker, Paz Encina.
A fascinating (and simple) way to tell a sad, touching story, using long static shots of the couple's daily life as a visual anchor for extradiegetic dialogue and atmospheric background sounds (the forest and the rain) - all done through an outstanding, immersive sound work.
