Trenque Lauquen

Laura Citarella

Argentina / Germany
Fiction, 2022, 260'

COMPETITION It all starts with a mission involving two men, in love with the same woman: to find Laura, who mysteriously disappeared. Rafael and Ezequiel embark on a search that follows the clues of old love letters, an unclassified floral species and a series of other narratives and mysteries that become entangled in this plot.

Trenque Lauquen sounds enigmatic but it’s only the name of a city in the province of Buenos Aires, Argentina. The real enigma is Laura’s disappearance. Or better still, Laura is an enigma to everyone but even more to the two men, both in love with her, who set out to find her together and speculate about her whereabouts, each one in his own way. Reminiscent of the cinematic saga by Mariano Llinás, Extraordinary Stories, Citarella builds her own universe, owing nothing to no one. An epic of intimacy, of the minor details that appear unworthy of highlight, that manages, without flashy persecutions or intricate political conspiracy theories, to create endless mysteries in the most improbable of places. A playful feminist subversion of the canon of the espionage genre where the timeless art of storytelling stands out and the said men’s absolute cluelessness about the real motivation behind Laura’s disappearance, featuring the occasional ringtone song of “Suspicious Minds” by Elvis Presley.  (Susana Santos Rodrigues)
