The Princess of France
aka La princesa de Francia
First screened in September 2014
Director: Matías Piñeiro. Cast: Julián Larquier, Agustina Muñoz, Romina Paula, Laura Paredes, María Villar, Elisa Carricajo, Pablo Sigal, Gabi Saidón. Screenplay: Matías Piñeiro (inspired by material from the play Love's Labour's Lost by William Shakespeare).

Twitter Capsule: Yet again, like seeing an intricate cut-paper playhouse pop up between two leaves of a thick scholarly book.

VOR:   Even more intricate than Viola, and even more suggestive that Piñeiro's ongoing project is more than its mercurial parts, even as it risks some repetition. Engaged with multiple arts at once.
