FILM: Mariano Llinas’ The student . October 25th, London

An intriguing political allegory set in the wheeler-dealing world of Argentine student politics. When attractive, intelligent and personable Roque (Esteban Lamothe) arrives at the University of Buenos Aires, he quickly becomes drawn into complex machinations of student politics in an antiquated system where differing factions vie for supremacy.

Juggling his amorous dalliances with a rising role as right-hand man for the veteran professor Alberto Acevedo (a wonderfully understated role by Ricardo Félix), Roque soon finds that the clandestine deals and back-room negotiations that mark the political terrain in which he finds himself operating, may not be as easy to negotiate as he had first assumed.

From Pablo Trapero’s screenwriter on Carancho (LFF 2010) and Lion’s Den (LFF 2008) comes a pointed and formally distinctive allegory on the intrigues and structures that govern Argentine politics. Grounded in a compelling performance from Lamothe – seen at last year’s LFF in Delfina Castagnino’s What I Love the Most – as the wily student politician on the make, Santiago Mitre crafts an alternative political thriller that brilliantly dissects the predatory ambitions of conflicting factions willing to do whatever it takes to achieve their goal.
