About the Movie
Victor returns to Buenos Aires after his father's death and a stay in Mexico to prepare a radio production of "Love's Labour's Lost." Reuniting with his repertory, he finds himself sorting out complicated entanglements with girlfriend Paula, sometime lover Ana, and departed actress Natalia, as well as his muddled relations with the constellation of friends involved with the project. As the film tracks the group's crisscrossing movements and interactions, their lives become increasingly enmeshed with the fiction they're reworking, potential outcomes multiply, and reality itself seems subject to transformation. An intimate work that takes characters and viewers alike into dizzying realms of possibility, The Princess of France is the most ambitious film yet from one of world cinema's brightest young talents, a cumulatively thrilling experience.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: "The Princess of France" has an appealing lightness and modesty, but it also feels flimsy and thin, like clever scribblings in the margins of a book, fleeting insights in search of form and energy.
Fresh: What's onscreen is often more noteworthy for the particular atmosphere, mood and language rather than any particular role the characters or events might be playing in moving the overall narrative forward.
Fresh: The action takes place in streets and bedrooms, studios and museums, and the actors are never word-bound; Pineiro, a master choreographer, sets them in graceful motion and captures them in fluid, lively images.
Fresh: In Pineiro's Shakespeare films, kisses are not "stolen," as the idiom has it, so much as frantically exchanged like batons in a relay, whisked from one character to another, punctuating the film rhythmically.
