DescriptionUsing some of the devices of the genre of melodrama - the staircase, the father - as some kind of destiny, Girl deals with the need and impossibility of re-creating a time, a place, and a memory. Cross-cutting between the girl protagonist and her father, the film creates a sense of crisis and conflict. As the girl invests her feelings in her surroundings and describes events connected to her father, we are drawn into a world of pain and pathos.
