Description: A young, naive clerk at a lingerie store learns about love and her own identity in Diego Lerman's 2002 film Suddenly. Marcia (Tatiana Saphir) leads a very banal and stagnant existence, especially since her boyfriend recently dumped her. While walking on the street one day, she catches the eye of a thuggish woman named Mao (Carla Crespo) who immediately decides to have sex with Marcia solely for the sport of it. Recruiting the aid of her friend Lenin (Veronica Hassan), Mao manages to talk Marcia into getting into a cab that the two women promptly hijack. They take Marcia to the coast to see the ocean -- which she has never seen before -- before ending up at Lenin's aunt Blanca's house. Blanca (Beatriz Thibaudin) proves to be much more fascinating than Lenin remembers her to be and the two begin redeveloping a connection. Marcia, Mao, Lenin, and Blanca all affect each other in a number of unexpected ways, thereby developing new, complex relationships that each of the women had lacked in their lives. Suddenly was in competition at the 2002 Locarno International Film Festival.~ Ryan Shriver, All Movie Guide
