While the 75 has just endede From the Cannes Film Festival, the films presented there are released in July 2021 that hopefully, the passage of Croix will not go unnoticed. As such, it would be a pity to miss Clara Sola, the first feature film by Swedish-Costa Rican director Natalie Álvarez Messin, has been selected for two weeks by two directors, as its charisma operates from the first minutes and spreads throughout the duration of the film. That’s OK, because there’s a bit of magic and magic in this lost corner of Costa Rica where a woman keeps us in her power for over an hour and a half. Her name is Clara Sola (Wendy Chinchilla Araya).
Clara lives with nothing but animal and nature observation, with her mother Freesia, who takes care of her, and her niece Maria, a beautiful little girl in her teenage years.
The animal’s face, the look at the prowl, the hair in the brush, the body and mind slightly curved elsewhere, the lady, roughly forty, presents herself from the start as a rather strange creature, childish despite the obvious features, wonderful in what exudes elusiveness. Clara lives with nothing, except observing animals and nature, with her mother, Freesia (Flor Maria Vargas Chaves), who takes care of her, and her niece Maria, a beautiful of a burgeoning teenage girl (Ana Julia Porras Espinosa) whose presence has been radiating throughout the home.

Clara is not ashamed, does not bother with modesty, follows her instincts, yields to what makes her feel good, and gives herself pleasure. Especially in front of the series and she watches every day on TV, where a man and a woman sometimes kiss. So Clara cannot suppress the urge to foreplay, and abandons herself in full view of her niece. While she is a good guardian of religious morals and patriarchal faith, Freesia is terrified of this “vice” that she tries to prevent by forcing her daughter to dip her fingers in crushed pepper. without result.
