35 Rhums

Crítica de Julio Nakamurakare - Buenos Aires Herald

Thirty-five shots of rhum drunk at a gulp

French director Claire Denis may be best-known for Beau Travail (1999), a remarkable tribute to masculinity as a rite of passage, as a beautifully choreographed and perfectly executed portrait of men living alone and flexing Nature’s muscle in the fading days of the Foreign Legion.

That same fascination with gender (which does not necessarily refer to sex) permeates her lauded 35 Shots of Rhum (2008), which has a belated, limited release in BA this week.
