The Blondes (Los rubios)

Rating:No Rating
Genre:Drama
Release Date:January 1, 2003
Running time:90 minutes
Director:Albertina Carri

Description: In an effort to reconstruct the abduction and murder of her own parents, this highly personal pseudo-documentary from director Albertina Carri endeavors to illustrate the brutality of Argentina's military dictatorship of the 1970s. Carri is no stranger to experimental techniques -- her short film Barbie Can Be Sad, Too was narrated entirely by dolls -- and Los Rubios is equally unconventional. Though the film starts off with a fairly cut-and-dried depiction of the investigation surrounding the 1977 disappearance of a group of political militants (a group which included Carri's parents), it isn't long before abstract metaphors begin their takeover: footage of real-life interviews with friends and neighbors is shown alongside a fantasy sequence involving a plastic spaceship hurtling toward a pair of plastic toys that Carri chose to represent two parental figures. Similar references to the struggle for identity are made throughout the film, which aired at the 2003 Buenos Aires Film Festival to great success. Los Rubios also features Analia Couceyro.~ Tracie Cooper, All Movie Guide
