Description
 

The Sacred Family (La Sagrada Familia)
A film by Sebastián Campos

Chile, 2005 (99 minutes)

Synopsis
Sometimes we're so asleep we don't know what we're up to, Marco's mother says, explaining why she must rush to Santiago to see a friend who was hurt in a car accident. Family is family, she says, but for a friend you have a commitment, even on Good Friday, when her son's friends will be houseguests for Easter. Using improvised dialogue and hand–held camera–work, the film captures the disintegration of the family's polite appearances at the hands of Marco's sensual and outspoken girlfriend. Adding to this potent mixture are Marco's friends—two university students facing exams, and a mysterious young woman with a vow of silence, guests for a weekend on the beach that will change all their lives.
