OLD CATS [Gatos Viejos]
Isadora (Bélgica Castro) is in her 80s and her mind is starting to go. Her husband, Enrique (Alejandro Sieveking), notices, but subtly compensates. They are happy in their comfortable, art-filled apartment, which Isadora's troubled, scheming daughter Rosario (Claudia Celedón) wants to seize for herself to live in with her dull-but-devoted girlfriend Hugo (Catalina Saavedra). The writer-director team behind THE MAID reunites that film's stars, Celedón and Saavedra, opposite two of Chilean theater's leading lights, real-life couple Castro and Sieveking, in this inventive black comedy of family relationships. Official Selection, 2010 New York Film Festival, 2011 Karlovy Vary and Sydney Film Festivals.
