Rodrigo Moreno

Rodrigo Moreno (*1972) was one of the formative figures of the Nuevo Cine Argentino, which in the mid-1990s was known for its socially relevant films with low budgets and amateur actors. His film A Mysterious World was shown in competition at the Berlinale in 2011.

Reimon is a taciturn young woman who cleans other people's houses. In long, often static takes, the film follows her daily routines, as she commutes through Buenos Aires to her various places of work, the work itself, the breaks. While Reimon cleans, her wealthy employers and their friends read long passages from Karl Marx' Das Kapital to each other and philosophize about the inequality of the classes, while scarcely noticing the cleaning woman. Reimon is a minimalist social drama with documentary traits. The leading role is played by an amateur actor who in real life works for a security company.
