Very Identifiable
5 May 2013 | by (Chile) – See all my reviews

I loved this short. Luchito in love with his neighbor (Pedro Campos ufff hahaha) in Chilean dictatorship era, that is the main plot of the story and although I did not live in that time I felt very identified with the protagonist's life and what happened to me when I was his age.

Idenficable history but with a very sad ending (I was not very comfortable with that, why Luchito indifference?), although that detail is the first Chilean gay short I see (i do not think that there are more) and I enjoyed it, it's one of my favorites, the song of Gloria Benavides also gives a special touch. If you have the chance to see it then do it.

My vote: 10 stars.
