The Body Remembers When The World Broke Open 2019 / Brilliantly and painfully realistic

7.0

Shot almost entirely in one take and on a tiny budget, and yet the central performance in this movie is still better than most big-budget dramas I’ve seen this year.

Two indigenous women, one upper-class and the other impoverished, meet on the day that the rich one gets an IUD and the other one, pregnant, finds herself kicked out of her home. They spend a few hours together: they talk, they take cabs, walk, etc; and you as a viewer, follow them throughout their intimate yet difficult moments.

If you like subtle movies that showcase how people live and interact with one another, beyond plot-obsessiveness, this is for you.

Very slow moving, and while the contrast between the haves and not couldn’t have been more apparent, the hopelessness was suffocating to me. I did not see a way out for her especially one that she seemed interested in taking 🙁
