La Flor is really one mega film consisting of six individual films – from mummy B-flick to spy drama. Llinás casts the same four actresses in different roles, creating a masterful homage to cinema itself.
Sometime in the 1980s, in the Argentine pampas, four female spies have to successfully complete ‘Operation Hercules’. In the morning, a life-and-death confrontation awaits them – but until then we crisscross the world, taking in tangents and prequels. A narrative masterpiece.
Winner of the Hubert Bals Fund Audience Award 2019.
