«We live in a period when we tend to isolate ourselves.»
Austrian filmmaker Lukas Valenta Rinner has been a long time observer of Argentinian society and its widening gap between rich and poor. A DECENT WOMAN confronts two secluded communities, a wealthy gated settlement and a nudist/swingers club right next door, subtly and slowly tracing the rise of tension that inevitably leads to the final showdown
