Pablo spends autumn among second-hand books, illegal cell phones, parties, cocaine, and wrong calls. His ex-girlfriend, Mariana, enjoys the winter while splitting her days between college exams, dealers of hard drugs, random meetings with couples she is friend’s with, and a new boyfriend.
Bookstores, conference transcripts, book editions and presentations, commentaries on newspaper articles, cell phone sales, parties. A film with a Nouvelle Vague texture, featuring the Buenos Aires scene of young people with jobs in film, literature, and journalism. Its title is a sarcastic announcement of its perspective, which stays at a distance while shows a thorough knowledge of that environment and its clichés, yet never enabling any kind of condescendence or mockery. Characters doubt, they make mistakes, they disguise their fears and passions with conversations, and conversations about conversations. Malena Solarz and Nicolás Zukerfeld have found a singular tone –warm and not invasive– to make this multiple portrait, as distant to stridency as it is relentlessly narrative. JPF
