I got to check this out at the LA Film Festival Shorts Program, and absolutely loved it. The intro to the film gives almost a slide-show presentation of the aesthetics (or lack thereof) of the architecture of Buenos Aires. This serves as a backdrop to isolationism and alienation between previous lovers, who manage to just barely avoid each other in this most desolate urban jungle. The parallels between Buenos Aires and Los Angeles were poignant, especially with the feelings of solitude in crowds and attempts at online dating. The cinematography and acting were top notch. This film was my favorite out of the series shown at the Fest.
