Mexican Cinema: Blue Eyelids (2007)

Dir. Ernesto Contreras / Cert. 15 / 98mins

Friday 13 June 2014

 

7pm / £5 (concessions £3) Pre-book on 01908 676 900

 

Blue Eyelids (Parpados Azules) is the critically acclaimed account of the developing relationship between two people in the vast metropolis of Mexico City. Winner of a Special Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival, it has earned director Ernesto Contreras a place alongside Alejandro González Iñárritu (Amores Perros, Babel) and Carlos Reygadas (Japón, Silent Light) as a major new force in world cinema.


Marina (Cecilia Suárez), a shy employee at a local factory, wins an all-expenses-paid holiday for two from her work. Although initially unable to find someone to accompany her, she encounters Victor (Enrique Arreola) in a coffee bar. Her invite prompts a series of dates that are by turns funny and awkward, as Ernesto Contreras skilfully explores the difficulties of finding happiness in the modern world.


With music by Ray Davies and featuring exceptional performances by Suárez and Arreola, Blue Eyelids is a subtly nuanced and wonderfully unconventional love story.

**** "Ernesto Contreras's debut feature finds its own kind of heightened, dreamy realism, a kind that skirts the frontier of reverie and hallucination in one direction, and that of gloomy disillusion in another" The Guardian
