The options for series and movies to enjoy through the streaming platform are becoming more and more extensive; During the month of December, new audiovisuals will arrive to enjoy in the company of your loved ones, which range from drama, experimental and comedy.
For this reason, we have made the selection of three productions that join the catalog during December, which invite viewers to reflect on their identity, acceptance, self-love and childhood.
What is Bardo about?
On November 18 it will be released in countries such as Canada, the United Kingdom, Italy, Germany, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand and finally on December 16, “Bardo” will be part of the Netflix streaming platform catalog.
“Bardo, Falsa Crónica de unas Cuantas Verdades” follows the story of a man named Silverio Gama, a prestigious and well-known Mexican journalist and documentarian who lives in Los Angeles, but who is forced to return to his native Mexico City, this later to receive an international award.
Upon arriving in his country of origin, Silverio finds himself in an existential crisis that will allow him to explore his emotions further, leaving his ego aside; Through various metaphors related to historical moments in Mexico, the production promises a completely different visual experience from what has been seen previously in the director’s work on films such as “El renacido”, “Birdman”, “Amores perros” and ” Babel”.
“The absurdity of her memories and fears infiltrate her present, filling her daily life with a sense of bewilderment and wonder. With deep emotion and abundant laughter, Silverio grapples with universal yet intimate questions about identity, success, mortality, Mexican history, and the deep family ties he shares with his wife and children. Indeed, what it means to be human in these peculiar times ”, reads the official synopsis.
