Premier mundial

Fernando in on vacation with his friends at a holiday home in Ezeiza. They rest in the pool, drink alcohol, smoke and bring their deepest secrets to light while they display a playful freedom, as though they were kids at summer camp.

With their solo films, Berger and Farina had shown a unique talent (or talents) for making ballets of sorts populated by half-naked male bodies. This carefree summer comedy, that flows through hyperbolically heterosexual lines of dialogue refuted with subtle flair by the images, proves to be the ideal playing field to take one more step in that direction. Fauns hugging each other beside the pool, in their underwear, getting into friendly fights, measuring each other: those are the visible movements in the choreography carried out by Taekwondo. But underneath its luminous surface, soaked by the sun’s orange beans, hides an ethereal quality that could well belong to the dream world, or that of the desires included in dreams. AM
