An odd turn

Francisco Lezama

Argentina / France
2024, 23'

An Argentinian girl works as a guard in a museum in Buenos Aires. To pass the tedious nights, she decides to predict the future. Between the movements of the dollar, an indemnity and a new job, what happens is a new infatuation. 

After IndieLisboa having shown Fuera de Cuadro (by Márcio Laranjeira) in 2010, which develops as a biographical portrait of Francisco Lezama, and the following year showing La ilusión te queda (co-directed by Laranjeira and Lezama, and winner of the Árvore da Vida award), the festival returns – a decade later – to the work of the Argentinian filmmaker. To a certain extent, Un movimiento extraño is the last instalment of a trilogy made up of the short films made in the meantime: La novia de Frankenstein (2015) and Dear Renzo (2016) – both co-directed with Agostina Gálvez. As well as resuming the work with actress Laila Maltz (who, to a certain extent, reprises her role from Dear Renzo), it continues the same depiction of a generation at odds with their country’s economic instability. Only this time, the fluctuations of the Argentinian Peso are reflected in the fluctuations of desire – in the other films, monetary instability was reflected in the permeability of the notions of truth. Faced with the uncertainty of capital, the fluidity of bodies. (Ricardo Vieira Lisboa)
