The Summit's user reviews


"Cinema is politics and positioning, Santiago Mitre's ('El estudiante', 'Paulina') too. However, in his third film, he bets more on the polanskian shadows of the game, on the paranoia of its tone, on the uneasy atmosphere."

Never manages to articulate a more nuanced idea than the fact that politicians are people, too.

"To the, let's say, official plot, the filmmaker adds a few complementary narrative threads that get 'The Summit' closer to, among other things, a psychological thriller. However, it's in the malfunction between these threads [...] where the weakness appear and ballast somehow the greatness of this proposal, that when is good, is exceptional."

The film treats politics as a transactional enterprise performed by competent actors with differing interests and incentives. If the film just stayed in that register, it could totally work.

"Santiago Mitre asks: is the president of Argentina good or bad? We answer: if Ricardo Darín performs him, he is great."

"Director Santiago Mitre sets out various parallel plots but he has not enought time to develop them and, in consequence, the whole film is perceived as uncomplete."

It?s just a shame that, for all this surface slickness, Mitre and co-writer Mariano Llinás can?t find a more conclusive finale.
