A comedy during lockdown? Probably. A portrait of a girl and her family in lockdown? Apparently. An absurdist Beckettian musical shot in lockdown? Exactly.
Cinema has played a role in documenting great moments in history since its invention, and now they are used to capture the most ordinary moments in life. The Middle Ages documents the days of a 10-year-old girl and her family confined in their Buenos Aires home. There are many films about the pandemic, but what makes this film unique is its comedic element. Like any great comedy, this film also hides a sad heart. While the pandemic forces them to live between danger and eternal waiting, the family spends their daily lives in confinement, worrying about the uncertainty about their future and careers but also taking small steps to live and be happy. This is an honest and warm comedy that reflects the daily life of a real family since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. [Sung MOON]
