Lurdes (Ana Padrão) has been taking care of her mother for a while now. But then one day, her mother is found dead in the garden surrounded by vipers and Lurdes is gone. In their small vilage, rumors start to make their rounds quickly.
Campo de Viboras didn’t manage to grab me and I found my attention floating away from it on a regular basis. Since it’s a short film, that is even more damning than it would have been in a longer movie. That being said, it didn have strong performances and very nice cinematography. I just didn’t really connect with it.
