This Argentine comedy is suitable for very light TV viewing, as I just watched it on Latin HBO (or was it Cinemax)... cable in any case, and now playing. The story revolves around superficial caricature characters pursuing the usual fame and consumer dreams of the globalist world.
What kept me viewing this story about Anybodies, set in Anywhere, Planet Earth was its location in Argentina. That said, it could have been California or France, by the look of the locations and the people. But, Spanish speakers who appreciate the nuances between Argentinian Spanish, and other versions of the language may find this aspect of the film interesting, as is the more European nature of the people and culture.
Those features aside, the film is just an entertaining and formulaic romantic comedy with not a trace of unhappiness. It's unbeatable as light entertainment. Not one moment of negativity. It's all just pure escapism in the sanitized, world of globalization, which does not really exist, but is the "ideal" to many of us.
