Description

A beach holiday turns into a wry romantic roundelay when an Argentinian couple and their kids are taken under the wing of a randy and vivacious Brazilian man who offers them his family’s home to rent. As the two different broods come to know one another, a variety of dalliances and separations arise. Argentine writer-director Ana Katz has a gift for capturing aspects of women’s experiences rarely found in film. Her latest is her best yet, juggling characters of different ages, generations, and amorous expectations. Florianópolis Dream perfectly captures those vacations where the days are full of possibility. At Karlovy Vary, the film won the International Critics’ Prize, the Special Jury Prize and the Best Actress Award for the radiant Mercedes Morán (La Ciénaga).
