Storyline

At a house party, a handsome man wanders around catching up with friends he has not seen for some years. A travel writer now based in Berlin, Andre appears to be living an exciting international life, and yet... something has drawn him back home to Santiago. As the night goes on, we realize that a tragedy binds this group - an event that was also the impetus for Andre's departure from Chile years ago. Moreover, there is someone at the party he goes to great lengths to avoid. But she is the very person he most needs to see. Written by Palm Springs Internation Film Festival

A nice movie about a wasted life
19 March 2011 | by (Valparaíso, Chile) – See all my reviews

This movie is sort of a "Uncle Vanya" or "August" type of movie, but with people of thirty years old: the poignant story of a guy who wasted his life, and is suffering the remorse of having abandoned his friends and his love. He's stuck in a strange party where his ghosts begins to haunt him, and he's faced with memories, choices, loneliness, nostalgia and remorse. It was emotionally perfect: the acting was great, the dialog and scenes were carefully crafted, and the music score is just perfect. Perhaps the movie has some minor issues in the editing and dialog, but those are only details. It's one of the best movies made in Chile of the last decades.

10/10
