Movie Info

A decade in the making, Mariano Llinás's La Flor is an unrepeatable labor of love and madness that redefines the concept of binge viewing. The director himself shows up at the start to preview the six episodes that await, each starring the same four remarkable actresses: Elisa Carricajo, Valeria Correa, Pilar Gamboa, and Laura Paredes. Overflowing with nested subplots and whiplash digressions, La Flor shape-shifts from a B-movie to a musical to a spy thriller to a category-defying metafiction--all of them without endings--to a remake of a very well-known French classic and, finally, to an enigmatic period piece that lacks a beginning (granted, all notions of beginnings and endings become fuzzy after 14 hours). An adventure in scale and duration, La Flor is a wildly entertaining exploration of the possibilities of fiction that lands somewhere close to its outer limits.

  • You will no doubt bail out at some point - but that's part of the deal. Llinás has done enough to make sure we come back.

  • An endlessly playful and playfully endless riot. Wildly, staggeringly entertaining.

    September 11, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • A theoretically interesting, but consistently unrewarding formal experiment.

    August 2, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Centuries from now, you could imagine a collector digging it out of obscurity, dusting it off and setting out to solve its puzzles.

  • And lest the runtime lead you to believe that the film is boring, know that its stories contain everything from mummies and scorpion toxin to spy-versus-spy skullduggery, none of which takes itself too seriously; if anything, it's a total romp.

  • Some image-based narrative works aren't really movies or television. They're just events.
