Jaime Grijalba Gomez reports from Chile:
Desastres Naturales (Natural Disasters) will open on Thursday, June 18. I reviewed it for ScreenAnarchy last year.
Natural Disasters is a comedy about a group of students during their last year of school, prepping for the tests that would lead them to a possible university education, and how they are confronted by a former (really old) teacher. She suddenly appears with her pink uniform and with the intention to make the class her own, even though she was fired from the school some time before. Things turn serious when she closes and blocks the door of the classroom with the students inside, promising to come out only if they explain to her why she was fired or if they offer her a new contract....
The film still manages to be funny in its dialogue and deep in its repercussions, as well as a visual testament of the talent of Bernardo Quesney and his future as a major filmmaker from Chile.
Here's the latest trailer.
