If Brandoni and Francella put their stamp on a good story, you have to go.
The high stick, with the Brandoni - Francella duo and a high-flying chemistry
The trio Duprat, Cohn, Duprat (Gastón Duprat, Mariano Cohn, Andrés Duprat) is very prolific, both in quality and quantity. "My Masterpiece", his fifth film, not only entertains, but also maintains the very good standard of quality to which we are accustomed.
Coming from their biggest box office success with "The Illustrious Citizen" (2016), here they kept their sticks high and perhaps even aspired to more, with the Brandoni Francella duo and a high-flying chemistry, plus that critical vision in the tone of comedy that has become part of their DNA.
With a small change of roles, since historically Gaston and Mariano were co-directors, this time Mariano sat in the producer's chair and left Gaston in the direction. The script, with its many twists and turns, as in "El Hombre de al lado" (2009), one of his most successful works, always by Andrés, who knows as few others the subject matter, painting and the environment that surrounds it, since he is the current Director of the National Museum of Fine Arts.
Art and its creative world seem to be a space of comfort for the trio, more precisely the public's attitude towards the artistic product. Certain bourgeois codes, their aesthetics and fashions, plus the "overvaluation" of the final product, all in a comedic tone that in each of his films was gaining in narrative intensity.
An untreatable painter and the gallerist friend who represents him, vanity, greed, values and his convictions, art as a business and even death, are a vital part of a film that makes you have a good time. When it comes to thorny and uncomfortable roads, the Duprat Cohn Duprat trio knows how to handle themselves without touching the brake.
