“Expected Unexpected”, an interesting film by Sisi Theo

REVIEWS 18/04/2022 Abel Figueroa

At the First Literature in Cinema Festival, which took place in Buenos Aires, Argentina, earlier this month, an interesting Canadian feature film by Sisi Theo was in the final.

“Expected Unexpected”, in its hour and 14 minutes, tells a story of complicated relationships that, when they fail, affect the lives of many people, not just theirs.

The director creates a climate that navigates between literature and theater, without ever losing sensitivity. It guides us along a path in which many of us will be able to identify ourselves or identify problems of those around us.

The cinematographic language is efficient, with a consistent classical aesthetic. A valuable film that deserves to be seen.
