Storyline

Martín is a 19 year old spiritless boy who works in a music rehearsal studio and attends a literary workshop. In the vigil following his uncle's death he sees his cousin Diego, whom he has not seen in a long time. Diego invites him to join his group of friends, where Martín meets, and immediately falls for, Nadia. After failing his attempts to pick her up, he meets Charlie Calltrop, a Rockabilly legend. Influenced by him, Martín will elaborate a plan to reach the girl of his dreams. Written by Gastón Rothschild <rockabilly@ciudad.com.ar>

A small movie with big results
2 August 2000 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

I've had the pleasure of viewing Rockabilly and, frankly, it is as good as it gets. While having some deficiencies because of the format that was used (digital video), the movie itself is a small masterpiece of acting, direction and, most important, writing.

During the movie we follow the misadventures of Martin, a late-teenager who falls in love with a girl who really does not care for him. We quickly get on the side of the character, skillfully played by Nicolas Mateo, a dazed & confused young man trying to figure out what to do. I don't want to give away much, but it is enough to say that, although this IS a boy-meets-girl movie, it is NOT the Hollywood type.

The script, as I said, is superb. Tight, not overlong (the movie is barely over 80 minutes) and with funny dialogues. The acting is excellent, with an array of argentinean young talent that never miss the mark. Besides Mateo (who is in 95% of the scenes and really holds the movie together), the best performances are given by Ivan Gonzalez (as Martin's not-so-nice mentor) and Laura Azcurra as the object of Martin's desire.

The bottom line: when you have a good story and good actors, you don't mind how the movie was shot. Rockabilly is a perfect example of that; but above all, it is a great movie.
