  • The Delay

    2012. Uruguay/Mexico. Directed by Rodrigo Plá. Screenplay by Laura Santullo. With Roxana Blanco, Néstor Guzzini, Carlos Vallarino. Forced to care for her increasingly dependent father and three children between shifts at the local textile factory, María feels the world closing in. Unable to afford professional care or secure help, she makes a rash and desperate decision as a means of escape. With an impeccable sense of detail in every shot—whether emphasizing wide-angle symmetry or tight, claustrophobic framing—The Delay is a testament to cinematic restraint and efficiency, eschewing fanfare for a lean and assured austerity. 35mm. In Spanish; English subtitles. 84 min.
