Class society – the biggest crime of all

When tragedy strikes the family of her housekeeper Nebe, Cecilia’s middle-class worldview slowly starts to crumble, turning everything she thought she knew about herself upside down in the process. A COMMON CRIME is a quiet and remarkably subtle film with a ghostly atmosphere that transforms the lead character’s guilt and inner turmoil into a tangible presence on screen. Francisco Márquez’ second feature is a remarkably assured interrogation of class society, in the tradition of fellow Argentinian director Lucrecia Martel.
