“Matías Piñeiro is one of contemporary Argentine cinema’s most sensuous and sophisticated new voices. In Viola, he ingeniously fashions out of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night a seductive roundelay among young actors and lovers in present-day Buenos Aires. Mixing melodrama with sentimental comedy, philosophical conundrum with matters of the heart, Viola bears all the signature traits of a Piñeiro film: serpentine camera movements, an elliptical narrative, and a playful confusion of reality and artifice.” -New Directors, New Films (2012, 65 min, digital).
