Film review: Thursday Till Sunday (12A)
Very little happens, very slowly, in this Chilean road-trip drama, though it's not without moments of grace.
Ten-year-old Lucia (Santi Ahumada) understands more than she lets on, sitting in the back seat of the family estate as her parents (Francisco Pérez-Bannen, Paola Giannini) quietly simmer towards the end of their marriage.
Over a long weekend outing to the remote northern wilds of Chile, director Dominga Sotomayor keeps close watch on the family dynamics and the play of emotion over Ahumada's sweet, open face.
It has the pre-emptive air of childhood memory: the endless road, the stopovers, the songs around the campfire and the imperceptible sound of grown-ups breaking apart.
