Juan Pablo Rebella,
Daniel is a young journalist investigating the context of the photograph of a presumed suicidal. When he starts falling in love with Marcela, the assigned photographer for the research, the case will start to drag them into darkness.
Boy, what a fantastic charmer of a movie! Beautifully written with dialog that is so deceptively easy. Absolutely deadpan comedy that is hysterical to watch. The story of Joaquin, his family and friends and the girl he falls in love with. The entire plot revolves around a piano that must be sequestered in Joaquin's grandparents house in order not to be seized by the courts in payment for the collapse of Joaquin's father's business. Everything that can go wrong. does go wrong and the piano is progressively destroyed throughout the movie. Fantastic performances from the talented young cast, terrific star power at work here. Funny, funny, funny scenes with voice overs contradicting the actual dialog being spoken. Beautifully directed, unexpected twists and turns in a nonlinear storyline that is charmingly flaky. Wonderfully original. If you want something that is completely different to the usual dreck of adolescent screw-ups seen in American cinema then get your hands on this one. An absolute delight!
