A small incident over two neighbors common wall sparks a conflict which affects the intimacy of the view over the chimney; the protagonist sparks a conflict and with paranoiac obsession destroys everyday life.
He works as a motorcycle messenger, his wages suck, his boss is a bastard, life stinks... Thank goodness his beautiful black-haired girlfriend is waiting for him at home. Yeah, she's waiting for him with her parents and with a daughter he didn't even know that existed.
Looks like the plot for a crazy comedy, doesn't it? But let me tell you: there's nothing funny about Argentina and the situation of that country which seems to be sinking into a bottomless pit. "Buena Vida Delivery" has a clear message in it: if life gets hard it can always get harder. It ain't easy to be a good person in a country that's full of charlatans and thieves, 'cause you'll probably end up penniless.
For those who decide to see this movie I must tell you that it will leave you with a bittersweet taste in your mouth (that's the way reality is). Is a good film with one or two actors that aren't good enough (something that's pretty rare in Argentinian cinema, for their actors use to be very fresh and unaffected).
*My rate: 7/10
