Storyline

This is Buenos Aires, its characters, its history, its reality. A complex movie for a complex city, depicted in the character's language, and in their relationship with the present and the past. This is a story of contrasts, offered by a despair choir of characters: the old couple who hire a young woman to record city's present images, because they "don't get out much now", the boy who finds out the real story about his parents out of a coincidence... this and the others are all illustrations of actual Buenos Aires.

The essence of Buenos Aires
10 June 2000 | by (Buenos Aires, Argentina) – See all my reviews

OK, there are a few things that don't work in this film, like, for example, the begining, wich is a little slow.

But that's pretty much the only thing that's not good about the movie. This film captures the true essence of the city of Buenos Aires and of its people, especially in the final hour. Vera Fogwill, as a young, un-experience film-maker who goes trough half the city filming and searching the beauty of Buenos Aires, along with the company of a boy from the street, wonderfly play by newcomer Nazareno Casero, gives one of the most heart-breaking and sweet performances ever seen on film.

Mirta Busnelli is also great, as a divorce woman, who is still in love (in fact, obsess) with her ex-husband, who's a tv host, so she puts the tv in the other side of the table and eats dinner wile she talks to him. And Carlos Roffe is excellent playing a men in love with the crazy woman.

Director Alejandro Agresti shows a mixed view of Buenos Aires: he maneges to show it both beautiful and uggly, in every scene you watch you get the feeling that's pretty but it also sickening.

This is one of the best film I ever seen, and that's simply because it's director succeed in showing the city trough he's eyes.

If you can get it, and you're in the moud for some lafs and tears, watch it.
