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

One of the better films of 2010 from Chile
30 June 2010 | by (Chile) – See all my reviews

The Director of this film, Matías Bize, started out early his career. His movies have grown a lot since his first attempts, and if we compare his first big hit (in Chile) "en la cama", we can really observe an abysmal difference with "la vida de los peces". While the first movie has the same elements, meaning a small confined space with two main characters mainly talking to each other during the whole movie, it's only in "la vida de los peces" that we can have a real insight in the characters, they actually feel alive and throughout the movie we start to evolve feelings for them. My opinion is that the script is much better than his other attempts, for this time situations happen in a way we don't expect them. I'm usually not fond of this type of films, but this time I had a great surprise. I think, the Director is finally starting to master his style.
