Tuesday Wonder: Too Late to Die Young (Tarde para morir joven)
30 Jul 2019 6pm
Set in Chile in the summer of 1990, Too Late to Die Young is a beguiling coming-of-age drama, partly inspired by the director’s own experiences growing up in the alternative ecological community of Peñalolén.
As the country comes to terms with the end of Pinochet’s dictatorship, a group of adolescents living on a rural commune attempt to make sense of their own burgeoning desires and tangled relationships. Sixteen-year old Sofia, the daughter of a famous singer, who is largely absent from her life, becomes intoxicated with the motorbike-riding Ignacio—much to the dismay of her friend, Lucas. Meanwhile, ten-year old Clara is more concerned with the whereabouts of her beloved dog.
Featuring a standout performance from newcomer, Demian Hernández, and beautifully shot by Inti Briones – who’s cinematography perfectly captures the sun-scorched hues of an endless teenage summer – this is a subtly observed tale brimming with hope and trepidation.
Little White Lies: ★★★★ “An intimate, human-focused film with broad allegorical potential”
Cinevue: ★★★★ “Too Late to Die Young is Castillo’s remarkable endeavour to relive memories, sensations and lived moments”
