A sort of cinematic music...Piñeiro fuses performance and daily life into a quietly mighty architecture of psychological complexity.

Isabella

Mariel wants to play the role of Isabella in a local theater troupe's production of Shakespeare's Measure for Measure but money problems prevent her from preparing for the audition. She thinks of asking her brother for financial help, but is worried about being too direct. Her solution is to ask her brother's girlfriend, Luciana, also an actress and a more self-assured one, to convince her brother to give her the money. Luciana agrees on the condition that Mariel will not abandon her acting and continue to prepare for the part of Isabella.

The latest in Matías Piñeiro's series of films inspired by the women of Shakespeare is his most structurally daring and visually stunning work to date. The intimacy he has built with his lead actors has never been more deeply felt than in these performances from Agustina Muñoz and Maria Villar. Isabella is a film about the ongoing battle between doubt and ambition that never discounts the possibility of a new beginning.
