Camelia arrived NY for her project: a translation of Shakespeare’s work. Mysterious postcards lead her to abandon her studies, winding her way through a series of amorous detours, dead ends and new beginnings.

  • Review

    Hermia & Helena is Pineiro’s 4th Shakespeare adaptation and his first movie in English. The plot goes back and forth between Argentina and New York. Theater Director Camilla comes to New York from Buenos Aires for a fellowship program. Living with an American guy named Lucas and having left her boyfriend in Argentina, her present is mixed with her past. Hermia & Helena may seem slightly random at first, but the events are cleverly arranged around each character, with the plot connecting the classic text to modern characters. The strange rhythm and flowing narrative makes it difficult to find the main theme of the story, but this is instead conveyed by rapid changes of geographic setting. Hermia & Helena is a great reinterpretation of a classical literature. This film is dedicated to Japanese actor Hara Setsuko. [JANG Byungwon]
