An excellent and original work of art and an sincere homage to film love
In black and white, with non professional actors, and a minimal story
with slow pace, it might seem another boring and pretentious
experimental work. Quite the contrary it's a fascinating, melancholic
hilarious and delicate testimony of some people's true love to cinema.
People that work all their lives in film archives and cinemateques,and
that dedicate their existence to preserve films, exhibit them and
educate audiences, have never been better reflected in a movie. Going
to in counter-current with the trivialization of the media and
dominating pop culture full of vacuous digital "special effects", this
work appeals to real "special affects" in order to introduce us to the
daily work in the uruguayan Cinemateque, one of the most respected of
the continent. It's not a documentary, although at moments it might
feel better than one in approaching it's characters, most of them
people who really work at the cinemateque or in the case of Jorge who
are film critics, not actors. The surprise comes at the second part of
the film, when reality and fantasy overlap and when the main character
makes a strange and illuminating voyage through the streets of
Montevideo in search of love and to reinvent himself through cinema. A
precious jewel recommended only to those with sensibility and
intelligence to appreciate this sincere declaration of love.
