Salgado follows Camila Toker during the Mar del Plata Film Festival. While she talks on the phone, the camera captures the boardwalk and collects Mar del Plata scenes that culminate in a slow motion piece, while we hear an Italian romantic song.
Some of the lines that run across Italian Romantic are the things we see and are whisked away, sounds, the murmurs and music of a city, the seductive walk of a woman –the beautiful Camila Toker–, the silent desire of a man filming and chasing, the local people of a beach resort and their counterpart, the tourists. Cinema within cinema, like an endless Russian doll. Shot during the last Mar del Plata Film Fest, the film’s images range from close-ups of the woman giving a ghostly interview to her love flings as she goes through the city sharing her experiences. A great compilation of the things driven by the experience of watching, making, and feeling films, either from inside or outside of it, as protagonists, directors, or spectators. MG
