The Future, 2013 - ★★


“If you had to kill someone, who would you kill?” - Bianca (Manuela Martelli)

Tomas & Bianca are two teenage siblings who've just lost their parents. Not only are they dealing with their sudden bereavement, they're also near broke, and worrying about their future. On a whim Tomas brings home a pair of guys, who end up coaxing Bianca into casing the home of a blind, former Mr Universe turned film actor named Maciste. In the hope of eventually robbing him, only Bianca grows attached to him.

I've been on a bit of a personal crusade to find a few good modern female directors, sadly Alicia Scherson's The Future's easily been the dullest of the bunch. its an excruciatingly boring and amateurish stab at provocative drama, squarely aimed at the art wank set. It just came across as an emotionally stunted soap opera.

[Personal Reasons For Remembering]

Chilean actress Manuela Martelli's character Bianca pointlessly baring all for dirty old blind man Maciste (Rutger Hauer), sadly she came across more sulky than sultry.
