TRAILER

A woman, Luisa, and her 14 year-old daughter, a sleepwalker in the teenage awakening. A marriage at the edge of a silenced crisis. A ritualistic and endogamic family: grandmother, siblings, and cousins. Summer, sweat, alcohol. Naked bodies, bodies in transition and their gazes upon those new bodies. A New Year’s celebration in the family’s ancestral country home is the necessary trap to awaken the sleepwalkers.

«Paula Hernandez schafft mit LOS SONAMBULOS das Kunststück, gleich mehrere weibliche Perspektiven zu forcieren, ohne die Männerfiguren zu marginalisieren. Dabei treten die Unsicherheiten aller Figuren zutage, ihr Trotz, ihre Suche. Und der Filmtitel, die Schlafwandler, bekommt eine ganz eigene Bedeutung. Das Gefühl, fast alles in diesem Film schon einmal gesehen zu haben, in anderen Filmen oder im eigenen Leben, verleiht LOS SONAMBULOS eine sonderbare Hartnäckigkeit - für einmal ist genau dieses Déjà-vu keine erzählerische Schwäche, sondern die zentrale Kraft dieses Filmes.» Michael Sennhauser, Radio SRF


«Paula Hernández se surpasse avec Los Sonámbulos, son quatrième long métrage, entre huis clos tendu et admirable portrait de femme.» Mathieu Loewer, Le Courrier
