Yesterday I went for a walk to the lake. And I was thinking that the world is huge. And that human nature, the Big Bang when it all exploded, it brought tons of things: the lakes, the mountains, all the animals. And it also brought human beings -
I sound like a school book - but human beings are much more complex. While a tree is just a tree, a person is something more locked off. It's like we're stuck inside the soap opera of life. And we have to live, we don't have a choice. ...

Beautiful movie about the life of teenagers in Patagonia
I've recently seen this movie at the International Film Festival Rotterdam and I must say I was pleasantly surprised by this movie.
Glue is a movie about Lucas, a fifteen year old boy living in a desert town in Patagonia ( Argentina) and his friends Nacho and Andrea. Lucas' parents' relationship is pretty unstable, but he doesn't want to be confronted with it. So he decides to spend his time hanging out with his friends, just talking about life and experimenting with drugs and sex.
Glue is a beautiful film about coming of age in the windy, desert-like outskirts of Patagonia. This movie is filmed with a very low budget and is very minimalistic, but it nevertheless succeeds to present very beautifully shot images in which we are granted a peek into the life of teenagers growing up. All the major themes are represented: Love, sex, drugs and music. This movie presents a universally identifiable view on teenagers.
If you have also seen this movie and enjoyed it, I recommend watching 'temporada de patos'. It is like a lighter version of this movie.
