(Matías Piñeiro, 2020, Argentina/France, 79 minutes)
The newest in a series by director Matías Piñeiro (Viola, The Princess of France) loosely dedicated to the women of Shakespeare, Isabella concerns a young woman named Mariel (frequent Piñeiro collaborator María Villar) who wants to play Isabella in a local production of Measure for Measure. The narrative arc follows Mariel as she tries to surmount entirely-relatable
financial trouble, but many of the film’s chief pleasures come from Piñeiro’s playful use of color and texture, which demand the film be seen on the big screen.
In Spanish with English subtitles.
