SUNDANCE REVIEW: Old Cats
PARK CITY -- There are two old and rather tubby cats in "Old Cats," but one suspects the title of this film by Chilean writer-directors Sebastian Silva and Pedro Peirano really refers to the elderly couple that shares a spacious 10th-floor flat in Santiago’s downtown district with those felines. This flat makes the single setting for another examination of the comic stresses and horrors of family life by these filmmakers, who follow up on their 2009 Sundance prize-winner "The Maid."
The new film, playing here in the Spotlight section at Sundance, doesn’t contain the dramatic fireworks of the previous pic, but art-house patrons will appreciate its acute attention to detail in its portrayal of a toxic mother-daughter relationship.
