Las Mantenidas Sin Sueños * Martín de Salvo & Vera Fogwill * 2005

“Kept And Dreamless” is a rather typical arthouse film which original title is much more beautiful than the international one. The story is not totally unlike “Tideland” (see elsewhere), where also a child has to take care of its drug-addicted parent. In “Las Mantenidas Sin Sueños” we see different people who appear to live in the lower classes of Argentinia and for whom life has no purpose at all. We also get to know a few people who actually ‘made it in life’, but who eventually come to the same conclusion. All this tragedy is brought with a light though, in beautiful bright colours and with amusing scenes and dialogues. The film is amusing, but like I opened this review, quite a typical arthouse drama.
