La invención de la carne / The Invention of Flesh (2009) Santiago Loza, Diego Benedetto, Umbra Colombo, Lisandro Rodríguez, Drama

The Invention of Flesh (2009)
Loza’s third film focuses on two lonely characters marked by deep sorrow. The female character lends her body, as if detaching herself from it, to the medical school of the university. The other one, a student, follows her and proposes her the following: to accompany him on a journey in exchange for money. She doesn’t know the reasons or the destination, but, for some reason, accepts.

Both of them are obsessed with the organic, reflected by the close ups which transmit a wounding intimacy; images in which the texture of the skin is so magnified that the human body becomes something strange, an object among the many others which the camera explores in this journey in which dialogues are precisely used –never revealing more than necessary-, as if drawing a parallel or an overlapping area between the lines of the peeling paint in a worn down wall and the lines which cut through our skin and flesh.
