Filmfest DC - Family Life

Run Time: 81 Minutes

THE LIGHTER SIDE

Family Life

 

Alicia Scherson, Cristián Jiménez

Chile, 2017

 

House-sitting for his distant cousin, Bruno, and his family, Martín (Jorge Becker) first does everything you worry about. He opens all the drawers, moves things around, and, of course, the cat runs off. Dutifully, he goes in search of it and meets single mother Paz (Gabriela Arancibia). She invites herself into Martin’s house and discovers photographs of Bruno’s wife and child. "Yeah, I just got divorced," Martín lies facilely. "No visitation rights. It’s a tragedy." The new relationship blossoms, but how long can Martín keep the story going? In the meantime, after several months, Bruno’s return is imminent. Family Life is a convincing co-directorship from Chilean film veterans Alicia Scherson (Il Futuro) and Cristián Jiménez (Bonsái). They share their unconventional humor and style, putting viewers on the wrong foot (for a while) in this fabulously acted, wry comedy.—International Film Festival Rotterdam
