“Lies are just another way of telling the truth”. This ambiguous quote initiates the extraordinary archeological work on a story that Nuria Giménez carries out in her first feature-length film, driven forward by imagination. A 20-year-long marriage is told based on Vivian Barrett’s diary, which can be read in the subtitles, complemented by 16mm colour pictures by her husband Léon, which underpin, contradict and hypnotise. MY MEXICAN BRETZEL plays with narratives, the authenticity of images, their decontextualisation and their reinterpretation, on the receptive level of spectators and that of the protagonists.
