Thursday Till Sunday Review

Image for Thursday Till Sunday

Ten year-old Lucia (Ahumada) has to face up to every child's nightmare: a long-distance car trip with her family. It's not helped by her parents' relationship strife which offers a pained backdrop to long hours crossing the barren Chilean countryside.


A Chilean tweenager susses the fissures in her parents’ marriage in debutant Dominga Sotomayor Castillo’s study of the loss of innocence, which achieves its mood of tense intimacy through the grumblings, glances and gestures exchanged in a claustrophobic road trip.

An impressive debut by Castillo.
