La Flor is a captivating and witty narrative made up of six independent, successive episodes. A long-nourished project by Argentinian filmmaker Mariano Llinás, produced over 10 years, it weaves a multiplicity of stories and defies any strict convention regarding genre and style. Connected by the same four actresses, who play radically different roles in each part, La Flor is also a tribute to the history of film.
Part 1 features episodes one and two of six. In episode 1, a group of researchers encounter a cursed mummy in a tribute to the classic B-movies, while episode 2 juxtaposes the story of two people making a song together after breaking up with a shadowy secret society trying to formulate a potion for eternal life. Both episodes pick up and end in the middle of the story – don’t expect any neat Hollywood packages here, but for film fans looking for an entirely new experience, La Flor is essential viewing.
