Dividing their expansive, rundown factory loft in half with a single strip of tape, grizzled sculptor He (Rodrigo Bolzan) and modern dancer She (in a revelatory performance by newcomer Raquel Karro) establish workspaces in order to further their respective crafts while grappling with the pressures of sharing space against the realities of a volatile relationship. As the balance between mutual support and competition slips away, resentments mount and once-suppressed tensions erupt into anger and acts of raw sexuality. The couple is soon pushed to their breaking point in a dance between two wounded souls in this carnal and evocative romantic drama. Following her acclaimed 2011 feature Found Memories, writer and director (along with Matias Mariani) Julia Murat expands the possibilities of dance in cinema while pushing against the boundaries of the classic relationship drama with this unique and extraordinary film. Winner of the FIPRESCI award for Best Film in the Panorama Section at this year's Berlinale, Pendular is a lyrical, uncompromised look at the creative process and a searing and unforgettable love story.
