Antonio, the errand boy for a florist, start taking him to a wedding bouquet and crown deceased. At two sites is late, but the boy is determined to continue in office, because each message means to him to discover an unusual world, a world accessible only through a bouquet of flowers.
"Se Necisita Chico" reminds us the ingenious Jacques Tati films that function as a mechanism which fit perfectly the component elements: the sounds and music, movements and gestures of the characters, the placement of objects , etc. They have little dialogue and thanks are suggested through the items noted, administered carefully, noting " Les Vacances De M. Hulot" (1953) and " Mon Ancle" (1958).
It is also unfortunate that Antonio Mercer has not followed suit. His first film, "Se Necisita Chico", consists of a succession of chances gentle twisting events causing a slight smile, the manner of Tati and Etaix, and is as nice as any of the directors said.
In principle we want to emphasize the relevance of the noises and gestures. At the start we see a sign in a flower shop with the title of the movie and shortly after a woman who makes a graceful movements on the sidewalk, as if looking at something you expect to find, as we heard whistles that draw attention to what is looking for, and become rhythmic when she walks away without finding anything; then appears blind to the contrary does find what appears to be a coin that has fallen to the woman. You have to hear the sounds that accompany a boy who passes in front of the flower shop, the arrival of the owner, about men, etc., without camera location change. Not that it's a great discovery but witty and accurate; the film has barely begun and already we realize that is done with intent.
After the credits, the boy and his mother are on the road. As she tells him that a man, now that his father does not live there to get to work ... the guy sticks his tongue out, whistling, tilted neck, walks hopping gives kicking a can be done ... The soundtrack indicates that all the talk would go in one ear and out the other.
A mother and son soon after entering a subway station. The camera is there to regulate away. Then, in the most unexpected moment, the boy appears, kicks him a can and re-enter. Everything is so witty and smooth. The vision becomes a delight. When they arrive at the florist's mother wants to put a musical dialogue between the mother and the mistress takes place, by which we infer that yes, the boy is adequate to cover the square referred "Se Necesita Chico"
Then the film is structured around the various tasks that charge: successively carrying a bridal bouquet, a funeral wreath and a bouquet for a movie star and song. Needless to say the guy does not perfectly fulfills none of the orders.
Meanwhile we witness almost half an hour tasteful, smiles and wit.
