An accident turns Guillermo, Bárbara’s partner, into a stranger due to some neurological consequences. While she struggles with her own pain, she gets involved with a man who offers her some stability, but the memory of lost love haunts her.
Sex Life of Plants’ style resembles a certain kind of American indie films that doesn’t stress the dramatic features of its plot in order to reach a revealing finale. On the contrary, this film draws emotion from tiny moments: encounters, failed encounters, and both the easy and difficult situations you face when starting a new relationship with someone you don’t love in the same way, but with whom you can have “a normal life”. This is a film any viewer who had to deal with this kind of loss can relate to, and constantly surprises you with smart notes on society and family. It’s a drama that doesn’t look at all like the kind of Latin American misery-focused cinema that has been working so well in film festivals recently. DL
