Film Description and Director Biography

Héctor Babenco is one of Latin America’s most prolific filmmakers, and his output has contributed greatly to the canon of cinema from that region. From his portrayal of the mistreatment of street children in Pixote, the Law of the Weakest, to his tender adaptation of Manuel Puig’s novel Kiss of the Spider Woman, to his depiction of the horrors of an infamous Brazilian prison in Carandiru, Babenco has shot in Spanish, English and Portuguese and made an international impact with his films.

His latest feature, El Pasado, is a more personal film. It’s about a love affair that has ended and expresses Babenco’s views on the different ways that men and women approach breakups. In his eyes, women generally hold on to failed relationships because they feel they have helped to shape their former partners, while “men look for a new relationship without carrying the baggage from the love that has ended.”

Rimini (a powerful turn by Gael García Bernal) and his high-school sweetheart, Sofia (Analía Couceyro), are splitting up after twelve years of marriage. Rimini quickly finds a new love, but Sofia will not leave Rimini alone. Her insistent meddling destroys every new relationship Rimini enters, even creating problems for him professionally.

After a series of mishaps, Rimini finds himself working as a personal trainer and having an affair with an older woman. When he finds her with another man, he flies into a jealous rage and ends up in jail. The only woman who still loves him comes to his rescue. Their attempts to break with the past seem impossible; it permeates their present.

El Pasado explores many facets of the differences Babenco perceives between men and women. Why can’t Sofia get over Rimini? Why doesn’t Rimini stand up to her? His inability to communicate his desires allows her to destroy his life – and those of his subsequent lovers.

Outstanding performances complement Babenco’s superb direction, which creates an ominous mood as we watch Rimini and Sofia deal (or, rather, fail to deal) with both past and present. This master filmmaker’s latest work offers a bold view of the type of relationship that some individuals never seem to escape.
