Asleep In The Sun (Dormir Al Sol)
Directed by Alejandro Chomski | ARGENTINA | 2010 | 83min
In this Argentine trip to the Twilight Zone, Director Alejandro Chomski introduces us to our protagonist Lucio (Luis Machin), a watchmaker and devoted husband. His beautiful but troubled wife Diana (Esther Goris) is overcome by depression. Convinced by a family friend, Lucio decides to admit the willing Diana to a phrenopathic institute for treatment. Upon visiting the institute, Lucio is given no answers, but he is assured that she is being cured. Frustrated and lonely, Lucio buys a dog for his wife as a gift for when she returns. But when she does, although she seems cured, she is not quite herself. Demanding an explanation for her strange behavior, Lucio returns to the clinic. He discovers that the doctors have their own agenda—and healing the sick is the least of it. - Tara Perillo
