A Common Crime

Un Crime Común

Argentina, Brazil, Switzerland 2020 Fiction cor 96 min.

Cecilia is a teacher who has a good financial life and lives alone with her daughter. On a rainy night, Kevin, the housekeeper’s son, knocks on the door, but Cecilia is too afraid to let him in. The next day, the teenager’s body is found in the river. Kevin’s impourish neighborhood accuses the police of having hounded the young man. Meanwhile, Cecilia begins to confuse reality and fantasy, as she believes to be seeing and hearing things. Would Cecilia be losing her mind or would her visions be an expression of her own guilt? With this ghostly narrative, director and writer Francisco Márquez shows the social inequality in Argentina between rich and poor, employers and employees.
