The Cinephiles

  • Argentina
Audio Tracks

Going everyday to the cinematheque. Scheduled dog-eared and annotated. Pulses racing at the thought of the latest discovery, the latest ground to be broken, the latest jewel uncovered from the history of cinema. Who among us can't relate, in some way, to the obsessive drive of the eponymous cinephiles in María Alvarez's film?

These are retired women from Spain, Uruguay, and Argentina who go to the cinema every day. The cinema lands on their lives like a drop of water. Its images leave traces on their memory. Their love of movies may run deeper than most, but the connection they have to images — which are, by their nature, fleeting — is a simple one: an attachment to time, to beauty, to the pleasures and discoveries a life in cinephilia can promise.
