Off-kilter and original, this Argentinian tribute to silent classics playfully revives that era’s black-and-white stylings in a fairytale-like allegory about political oppression and resistance. Silence reigns in the City Without A Voice, the inhabitants having been robbed of their powers of speech – all except an elegant, hooded singer and her eyeless son. Aided by a telly repairman’s family, she holds the only hope of shutting down Mr TV’s machine-driven plans to steal the people’s words. While snowfall makes Buenos Aires seem surreally unfamiliar, echoes of Argentina’s history of dictatorship are all too clear in this tale of broken families and totalitarian rule.
