Paraguayan Hammock (2006)
Critic Reviews for Paraguayan Hammock
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.
Dragging along in a tedious rhythm of long-take, big-talk, Hamaca Paraguaya is a cinematic bust.
Audience Reviews for Paraguayan Hammock
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.
