Adrián Suar and Pol-ka, 4 December 2005
Author: jpschapira from Argentina

One thing that's fairly true about Argentine cinema is that movies tend to look a lot like TV programs; which has its advantages and disadvantages. Because you know that you're not going to see TV when you get inside a movie theater, and if you find something TV-like, it's a disappointment.

On the other hand, you turn on the television and watch programs like "Los Simuladores" or "Locas de Amor", and it feels so much like a movie, that you end up amazed. Coincidentally, the latter of these two shows is from Pol-ka, probably the best producing company in Argentina (produced the Oscar-nominated feature "The Son of the Bride"); and the director was Daniel Barone, director of "El día que me amen".

Barone is Pol-ka's most gifted director, and has directed most of the company's films and its most awarded TV shows. As you can see, everything is connected, and the man who controls it all is called Adrián Suar. Now only in his 30's, he has created his own big company and has came up with the ideas for all of its productions. He has also achieved a solid acting career.

I'm saying this because he is my favorite Argentine actor today and he thought of an idea for "El día que me amen" that concludes in what is his most risky performance to date. I'm grateful he took a big compromise with this movie, getting the best director he had and reuniting the best actors he had ever worked with; including Alfredo Casero, in an incredible appearance I can't detail because it would ruin the experience.

Suar plays Joaquín, a troubled grown-up who hasn't left his house in years, because he thinks he was abandoned. A doctor played by Jorge Marrale (wonderful portrayal) visits him every week to talk about his state. Nothing changes; his father Ignacio (Juan Leyrado) has understood it, although he blames himself for some things he did and he can't take back.

Many things happened in Joaquín's life. Things I won't tell that carry with the whole film. The one thing I can tell is that his best friend and probably girlfriend left without letting him know, and after that his life went on hold. That girl is now a woman, and has now returned, and now everything will come out; for good or not. She is Mara, and is played by Argentina's best actress (and my favorite), Leticia Brédice in a performance that seems so natural when being so complex, revealing different personality sides and conquering our hearts.

What happens between the characters is written by two of Argentina's most efficient writers, Marcela Guerty and Marcos Carnevale. Their screenplay is powerful because their characters' emotions are deep, but at the same time so silent, that you can't really tell. And everything happens so slowly that you are afraid of what's ahead of the characters…Are decisions taken for the good of everyone? Are the actions realized, when brave, actually accurate?

I think both questions deserve a "yes"; I don't know what you would say.
