The combination of budding adolescent sexuality and Catholic SundaySchool sermonizing leads to confusion and trouble in Lucrecia Martel'sremarkable second film The Holy Girl. Similar in style to AlainCavalier's masterful Thérése, another film about religious fervor, TheHoly Girl is an extremely in...
Director and co-writer, Lucrecia Martel (Argentina, 1966), hascertainly re-written the Lolita story. But this time, the older malefinds a more complex younger female in his way. The world is small andcertainly claustrophobic, mainly a hotel with mineral baths somewherein the Santiago del Estero regi...
La Niña Santa is one of the smartest, sexiest, tenderest, funniest,quiet-and-unassuming movies I've seen in the last half dozen years. Itdelivers a velvet glove, emotional coup-de-grace (despite thediminuendo ending), and for precisely the reasons the other revieweradjudged it 'one of the worst mov...
Lucrecia Martel is one gifted artist. Her latest film, 'La Niña santa'(The Holy Girl) was conceived, written and directed in a style that isa tough and puzzling of Luis Buñuel and Pedro Almodóvar: what you seeon the screen is an enigmatic mixture of sexuality and spirituality,comedy and drama, po...
More admirable than attractive is Lucrecia Martel's "The Holy Girl" –even at this time I am feeling a steady amount of ambivalence towardthis maddeningly beautiful film. Is this kind of paradoxicalrelationship even possible? Even the proverbial sinner in his love/hatetoward expiation seems dubi...
"The Holy Girl (La Niña santa)" effectively captures the obsessive,all-consuming passions of adolescent girls, like an Argentinian"Thirteen" suffused by Catholicism instead of California pop culture.Young teens are shown exploring their faith as equally as their bodiesand the new found power of the...
As far as I'm concerned, the film is an outstanding achievement incinematic narrative, I'm tentatively including it as one of the verybest I have seen. A lot of viewers have complained about theslumbering, monotonous tone and the filmmaker's insistence to notexplain her vague story, which capped off...
The Holy Girl, is about a 16 year old girl named Amalia (María Alche)who lives with her divorced mother Helena (Mercedes Morán) and heruncle Freddy (Alejandro Urdapilleta). Joined with a religious crazygirls's only group, who apparently live in a run-down hotel, whichAmalia's family owns, and have...
Martel's sophomore effort proves her to be as exciting a visualist asthe Dardenne brothers and Almodovar (who snags an executive producercredit on the pic). 'The Holy Girl' is technically brilliant in almostevery respect, the film is generally comprised of static, denselylayered, close ups that prov...
The first time I started to watch this movie was after drinking twobeers pretending they would be enough to send my stressful day at workinto the past and help me indulge in the simple pleasures of idleness.I couldn't understand anything of the first 20 minutes and fallingsleep won the match. I didn...
This is a difficult movie mainly because it attempts to reach for anelusive subject: the enormous power of women over men, in spite oftheir ostensibly inferior status.The story is so idiosyncratic that we have to believe it is drawn fromthe director's life, and it is told in an appropriately intense...
Critic A.O. Scott called La Niña santa "a miracle" in his NY Timesreview, comparing director Martel's style to the French New Wavefilmmakers, but this comment is as widely off the mark as Martel'smuddled narrative.From the beginning, Martel fails to adequately characterize her leadactress, a confus...
I think that our subtitles weren't right, which is odd, since we rentit from a normal video shop. The conversations weren't going anywhere.Anyone knows what was wrong with the womens eye(?)I survived 102 minutes of film, glad to never see it again.What i really thought was annoying, was the lack of ...
This film received such critical raves, that I decided to rent it onDVD. What a huge mistake. This isn't even mediocre...it's horrible. Thefirst hour of the picture wasn't even necessary. The "story" (and I usethat term loosely) takes shape in the last 45 minutes or so. And then Iwaited for the endi...
I watched this movie on DVD and I almost suffer a cardiac arrest -terrible piece of art!!!. I had watched The Swamp a couple of yearsago, which I found even worse, unbearable really!!!. Lucrecia I'm sorry, but I don't really understand you at all. On top ofthat, I had the patience to go through all ...
When you film a movie you can use your freedom to make whatever youwant: you can tell a story or just put the focus on a segment ofpeople's life and nothing more. For example, Lost In Translation issimple. Maybe you don't have a perfect start, middle and end. Just acouple of days of an actor. But it...
Lucrecia Martel, the director of "The Holy Girl" gives us an eroticallycharged account of a young woman's awakening to a world that she seemsnot to be ready for. Ms. Martel combines a mixture of religion anderoticism in the narrative of the film. As always, the director gathersan interesting cast to...
Yesterday, in my lunch time, I saw this new-released DVD on sale in astore. I had no information about "La Niña Santa", but its cover hadthe symbols of participation in the Cannes, Toronto and New YorkFestivals, and four favorable reviews (from "Le Monde", "Premiere",Sergio Rizzo (unknown for me) f...
"The Holy Girl" is an offbeat look at the thin line that separatespiety from eroticism in the mind of a sixteen-year-old girl. Amalialives with her mother and uncle in a family-run hotel which iscurrently hosting a medical convention for a group of out-of-towndoctors. Amalia has been convinced by he...
For someone who has watched a fair amount of foreign films, I am sad tosay that I truly am dissatisfied with this picture. I do agree that "LaNina Santa" had many close-up shots; actually, the movie seemed toconsist only of close-up and medium close-up shots which seemed to haveruined the film for m...
Looking at some of the other user comments, I realize that many soughtto extol the purported virtues of this film, professing LucreciaMartel's artistic brilliance and method for capturing personality andconflict as demonstrated in this, her "ouevre," but as far as I'mconcerned, these people must be ...
A number of reviewers seemed to be blown away by this movie. I didn'tfind it particularly "brilliant," nor for that matter, very engaging. Amiddle-aged physician at a medical conference (away from his wife andfamily) begins a painfully halting flirtation with an attractivedivorcée. Yet later, in a ...
It's really hard to enjoy a movie in which nine out of ten charactersspeak so softly, whispering and grumbling without any sense. I cannotbe engaged in a story built exclusively with environmental and symbolicelements and no suspense at all. I do not want to listen anything aboutthe same old debate ...
This is a terrible movie. It was a waste of time. I forced myself towatch the whole thing hoping it would get better. It got worse. Don'twaste your time. The other reviewers who claim this is a "masterpiece,"are art-house critic wannabees who know nothing about film. They haveno knowledge about film...
I'm in general not a fan of Spanish-language cinema, for the samereason that I don't care for Russian classical music; it's usuallyoverheated and unsubtle, telegraphing emotions like Yiddish theater.For every hypnotic or erotic sequence in Almodovar, there's anotherthat's just juvenile and sub-Freud...
