In Curuguazu, located in the Argentinian countryside, seventeen year-old Daniel Montero has been raised by his grandmother for three years since the death of his parents in a car accident. Daniel has a boring life, working in a poultry processing plant and meeting his friends in the square to make small talk. He saves some money from his salary and buys an old television, where he watches late night porn shows of Sabrina Love. Daniel wins a contest to spend one night with Sabina Love in Buenos Aires. However, he does not have the 50 pesos to pay for the bus ticket and hitchhikes along 500 kilometers with truck drivers to the city. He is robbed on the road but arrives in Buenos Aires on Saturday morning, but the television postpones his meeting with Sabrina Love to Monday. Without any money, he visits his older brother Enrique who left his hometown many years ago to study agronomy and does not know that his parents are deceased. Daniel discovers many truths during his brief stay. Written by

The main reason for me to watch Sabrina Love was the presence of Cecilia Roth. Cecilia is one of the best Argentinian actresses ever, and one of the more famous too. Every time I see his name among the cast of any movie I go and watch it. And so I did with Una Noche Con Sabrina Love (One Night With Sabrina Love).
"Una Noche.." contains most of latest Argentinian cinema's keys: lost of dialogues, voices over, reflections on life, and freshness. The story is quite simple: Daniel, a young boy from the country (Tomas Fonzi) dreams of meeting his favourite porn star: Sabrina Love (Cecilia Roth). Thanks to some TV contest he finally makes his dream come true: he'll spend a whole night with Sabrina Love. From the moment he wins the contest on we'll witness all the penalties he has to go through to get to Buenos Aires (he's from the inner side of Argentina, he has to travel more than 300 miles, and he's got no money). As you can see the story itself is not that original (as in the most of Argentinian latest movies), but the dialogues and the reflections are something else. Daniel's conflicts and doubts are the main points of "Una Noche...", and maybe you'll identify with some of them.
As for the actors: we got Cecilia Roth and Norma Alenadro, which are two of the more well-known Argentinian actresses; Giancarlo Giannini, one of the most international Italian performers; and Tomas Fonzi, the promising starring of this film.
If you like "Una Noche..." I recommend that you give a chance to "No Sabe/No Contesta", "9 Reinas", "El mismo amour, la misma lluvia", or "Kamchatka". There's something going' on in Argentinian cinema.
