Clara's Gaze

An attractive biographer (Tamae Garateguy) approaches a writer in Buenos Aires (Gabriel Feldman) with questions about his moviemaking family, in particular his cross-eyed Swedish grandmother (Natalia Segre), who improbably became a siren of Argentinean silent cinema. Pablo Torre's 2006 drama is a fictionalized riff on his own family: his father, Leopoldo Torre Nilsson, and grandfather, Leopoldo Torre Rios, were both prolific filmmakers. But he doesn't seem to have learned much craft from either of them: his 1920s flashbacks lack any authentic period feel, and confusion results from actors playing multiple roles, often in bad wigs. 89 min.
