A Jewish version of Bridget Jones is the starting point for this first film that was born out of a viral YouTube video. “Why am I still single?” “What’s wrong with me?” and “Have I done something wrong?” form the algid repertoire Schargorodsky’s self-inquiry unfolds in this documentary in which other people’s voices sound too strong. But the misfortunes of a single girl –told with the tone of an American rom-com– lead to a journey back in time to Montevideo, Rome, and India: Paula wants to interview her ex-boyfriends and see if what they have to say is more real than what she hears from her mother, her friends, or the dozens of hours of video footage she recorded back when love was alive. When faced with them, the comedy doesn’t hold and the tone is dropped. She needs to make a different film: what this 35 years-old woman discovers is way more intense than a mandate or a chronology. And single-desperate-Paula knows how to make room for director-Paula to capture, in the unexpected warmth of those conversations, something more like the testimony of the love affairs that existed and were much more than just searches for a “happily ever after.”  MY
