Review of 'The Rite of Spring': Diversity and Prejudice

    The diversion to the uncomfortable or dark zone, whether due to the death of a loved one, illness or, as here, sexual awakening approached as an inquiry, constitutes the core theme in the filmography of who is already an unrepeatable author. Shot five years after the exceptional ‘Die’ (2017), ‘The Rite of Spring’ dares to talk about clandestine sex work at a time when abolitionist positions lacking nuances seem internalized, but not with the weapons of political cinema , but from the intimate perspective of a dislocated protagonist.

    Franco recovers the subversive value of ‘Nacional 7’ or ‘Las sessions’ and establishes a peculiar dialogue with the equally audacious ‘Vivir y otros ficciones’ (Jo Sol, 2016), showing sex as an act of rapprochement with the other and not only as a symbol of submission or objectification that urgently needs to be neutralized and contained. The result is a beautiful act of artistic terrorism, as virtuous and warm as it is absurdly human.
