Set against the backdrop of Argentina’s military
regime of the 1980s, Diego Lerman’s engrossing and beautifully acted
exploration of the totalitarian urge opens with a portrait of María Teresa, a
lonely and deeply repressed
assistant teacher at an elite Buenos Aires private school. Obedient and
willing, she accepts unquestioningly the school’s rigid code of conduct and
proud identification with the nation state. But her head professor’s words
about the “cancer of subversion” and need for total surveillance soon feed an
unhealthy obsession with one of her students, leading to an ensuing spiral of
degradation and breakdown in discipline that parallels a popular rebellion
beyond the school’s ivy-covered walls.
