"The Heiresses" almost subliminally alerts you to complexities of sexuality and status that many films would prefer to simplify. It also draws you into a social milieu that is both highly specific and intuitively accessible.
The Heiresses combines the humor of his sharp social observations with the tenuous restlessness and the reborn sensuality that shakes inside Chela, suspended in a time when everything was easy, even love. [Full Review in Spanish]
With a subtle narrative, built around glances, fragmented conversations and small details, [Director Marcelo] Martinessi shows Chela's vagaries... while portraying a social class. [Full review in Spanish]
This beautifully played-out drama is as much about the emergence of Paraguay after so long under dictatorship as about the middle-aged Chela, now emerging from the literal darkness of her shadowy home. Ana Brun is exceptional as Chela.
