Cornelia and Her Lovers

Screen adaptation of a classical gem of Argentinian literature.

An Award Winning Story by Sylvia Ocampo

Starring EMMY Nominated Almodovar star LEONARDO SBARAGLIA, known for Oscar & Palme d’or Nominated WILD TALES

Director Daniel Rosenfeld (Winner of Best New Director Award at the Venice Film Festival) has successfully brought Silvina Ocampo’s disturbing strangeness to film, making it a sublime, stylish and hypnotic exploration of the magical realm from which all art originates: the domain of the in-between, the space between two notes, the crack where light gets in.

Beautiful and fragile Cornelia returns to her supposedly empty Alice in Wonderland-like childhood home. As the mirrors begin reflecting her multiple personalities, lovers mysteriously appear one by one as if wanting to keep her from entering the other side from where there is no return.

The filmmaker manages to stay true to the original concept of the writer who intends the viewer to be co-creator in this suspenseful tale of love, longing, destiny and redemption. As if by magic, when Cornelia looks into the mirror, we see our own psyche in the reflections.
