"En La Puta Vida"
Directed by Beatriz Flores Silva
Elisa dreams of opening her own hairdressing salon in
one of the rich districts of the Uruguayan capital. A bit of a rebel, Elisa
decides to move out of her mother's house with her two children. She breaks
up with her boss who has infuriated her by not wanting to get married. Her
best friend finds her a job in the local brothel and soon she winds up in a
downward spiral into prostitution that leads her to Barcelona, Spain. The
film's mix of drama, comedy and social commentary have made it a film
festival favorite. Uruguay. 100 minutes.
