44th edition 21 January - 1 February 2015


Her days consist of commuting and cleaning all over Buenos Aires. While Reimon vacuums, her wealthy clients read to each other, fascinated, from Marx's Capital. The latest film from the maker of The Minder is sober and socially committed. Nominated for The Big Screen Award.

Reimon is a young, lonely and taciturn woman who lives and works in Buenos Aires. Argentine director Rodrigo Moreno (El custodio) follows her everyday routine in long, often stationary shots. Reimon is sitting in a bar, walking down the street, eating, having a nap and cleaning for people who are a lot better off than she is. As she dusts and toils, the yuppies and their friends read endless passages out loud from Das Kapital - Kritik der politischen Ökonomie, Karl Marx’s treatise on work, money, working conditions, slavery, sleeping, eating and relaxing. While they philosophise, they barely notice Reimon; theory is more interesting and certainly less confrontational than practice.
Committed, extremely minimalist drama by Moreno, who forms part of the Nuevo Cine Argentino, the new Argentine filmmakers who made a name for themselves in the mid-1990s with urgent films produced on a limited budget and shot on location with non-professional actors. Reimon was supported by the Hubert Bals Fund.

Fraai, hoe de absurditeit van haar situatie wordt weerspiegeld op het gelaat van de zwijgzame huishoudster, terwijl haar jonge werkgevers Marx voorlezen. De film is, los van wat hij verder nog wil zijn, een ode aan de waardigheid waarmee deze vrouw haar lot lijkt te dragen: haar krijg je niet klein.
