WILL SELL THE MUERTE WILL TEND IT ALL OJOS (DEATH WILL COME AND SHE WILL HAVE YOUR EYES)

Chile, Argentina. 2019. 89 '. VOSTF.
Director: José Luis Torres Leiva
With: Amparo Noguera, Julieta Figueroa.

The love between Ana and Maria is put to the test with the fatal illness of Maria who decides to interrupt her medical treatment.

Vendra la muerte y tendrá tus ojos borrows its title from the hyponymous poem of the Italian poet Cesare Pavese. And it is indeed a question of death and poetry throughout this exquisite work, whose formal mastery is only surpassed in elegance by the infinite delicacy with which José Luis Torres Leiva films his protagonists and carves out his chronicle of death announced, beyond any miserability or narrative over-dramatization. Against the threat of reality and the inexorability of separation, this lesbian drama summons the powers of magical realism, poetry and the fantastic to celebrate love above all and pay homage to life.
