Toledo, 25 years old, future architect, suffers from an acute jealousy. He cannot concentrate on his job nor on his studies, being continuously mindful of his girlfriend and concubine Ana's whereabouts and activities. Toledo arrives home and has a long conversation with Ana, who constantly manifests a ridiculous desire of 'going out for a drink'. They lie in bed but all his advances are instantly rejected by a progressively more nervous Ana. He cannot explain her intermittent crying and disturbed reactions. Until she leaves to the kitchen and he finds out that under the bed a male shoe that does not belong to him is carefully hidden by a male hand, under his own eyes. Paralyzed by the discovery he is only capable of leaving with a stupid excuse, trying to hide from Ana the anguish that barely lets him breath. Toledo awaits on the street for the exit of Ana's lover and begins a one-of-a-kind persecution-investigation that will last the whole night, to find out, before confronting him, ...

Being the character
24 May 2011 | by See all my reviews

Ezequiel is a young architecture student whose world begins to collapse when he finds out that there is another man in his girlfriend Ana's life. He does not know how to handle the situation very well and makes a series of bad decisions in retaliation. Damián Szifron creates a dramatic, suspenseful, and comedic film which develops very unexpectedly. From the very beginning of the film we follow Ezequiel, learning who he is and what he does. After his realization of the events which his girlfriend has taken part in, we begin to experience a side of Ezequiel which seems to be as new to us as it is to him. His actions at various times are very abrupt and without much thought, which make the audience wish they could stop him or at least advise him. This is a good sign that the director achieves capturing us in the story and causing us to feel what the main character feels, although there is nothing we could do about it. Although Ezequiel's rash actions give the public occasional scares, after the fact they become quite comical and ensure the viewer an enjoyable movie watching experience.
