Estela Canto y Jorge Luis Borges se conocieron en 1944. Estela era mujer culta, inteligente, bella e inquietante. Trabajaba como locutora de radio, traducía textos de inglés y quería ser escritora. Borges era un hombre tímido, apegado a su madre, conservador, empleado en un modesta Biblioteca pública. Todavía era un desconocido para el gran público. Comenzaron una relación muy especial. Una joven liberada, precursora del feminismo, y un hombre tímido que pedía permiso a su madre para salir, para invitar a Estela a bellas elucubraciones intelectuales, en caminatas nocturnas por San Telmo o Parque Lezama. Se sucedieron episodios amorosos, dudas, consultas a amigos, intrigas, dolor. Alternaron con artistas y escritores de la época. Y se enamoraron. O al menos Borges se enamoró, mientras su madre y su hermana se oponían.

This movie is about the love story of Jorge Luis Borges and Estela Canto. He's not yet the famous writer; she's a translator. He's old; she's young and beautiful. He's insecure; she's strong. He's controlled by his mother; she has two jobs to support her family. He's methodical; she's practical. He's afraid about sex; she's looking for it. They are completely different but love is waving to them. "Un amor de Borges" goes to touch you - calm, warm and kindly.
