A dreamy tale of quiet introspection, The August Virgin is a gorgeous and understated drama which drifts through the malaise of the oppressive heat of Madrid in August. Eva is a lost soul caught in the empty city, braving the temperature as she interacts with acquaintances old and new, pursues love interests and contemplates her transient existence. Capturing her internal life in gentle, vivid detail, the film provides delicate moments of appreciation of Eva’s place in the world, taking pleasure in the profundity of the simple moments of life, and providing a beautiful meander through its heady days of summer haze.
