'Familiaridades' is one of the early and most unknown works of Felipe Cazals. It has that 60's feeling all around, deep influenced by the French nouvelle vague, with only two main characters (in something that recalls me of the couple in Godard's 'À bout de souffle').There are some situations that become disturbing as the movie goes: first of all the arrival of the salesman. Then, the woman and him get drunk and a second salesman arrives. The appearance of a dying woman in a wheelchair becomes another subplot that kind of disturbs and works as some surrealist element to get to the end: the two characters (who are very lonely) accomplish what they intended in the beginning, when they first met.
