This final work of a trilogy - which begun with Rosalinda and was followed by Viola - retrieves the comedy Love's Labour's Lost to put the woman back in the centre of the narrative. Victor, a director, returns to Buenos Aires after his father's death with the idea of creating a radio version inspired by that Shakespeare comedy. For that, he surrounds himself with a group of actresses with whom he had or will have sentimental relations. In La Princesa de Francia, Piñeiro uses Shakespeare, in a work marked by intertextuality, to speak to us of the fluidity of amorous relations in contemporaneity. But, as is already a common feature of his films, what stands out on the screen, more than the plot of the young Argentines and their loves, is a portrait of the surrounding, the language, the inner life of those faces. An intimate portrait perhaps only possible due to the continuous work with these actresses. (Rita Morais)
