The Obscure Spring
Focus on Mexico
NI Premiere

A sexually charged, grown-up study of infidelity, discontent and regeneration.

Unhappily married Igor and struggling single mother Pina work together at a photocopier factory in Mexico. Their sudden, raw lust for one another serves as a catalyst for upheaval in their relatively mundane, unfulfilled lives, which leads to a shocking dénouement. This is elegant, powerful cinema, offering a bleak and brutally honest portrayal of the complexities of human relationships, and the often destructive power of sexual attraction.
