The story is about three young boys, Leche, Javi and Seba, of Montevideo trying to survive to the Sunday. They have lots of problems involving studies, girls, and the only thing that they do is drink, sleep or find strange people like a crazy delivery boy, a retarded, a drug addict and a philosophical video renter.Written by

I'm from Ecuador, Quito. This movie is just one of the best movies ever made in Latin America and for sure in the world. This is not a problem about "what is more intellectual or what is more Hollywood style" this movie is simply a tribute of creativity and cinematography. The camera work, the acting way, all the aesthetic decisions are coherent with the script and with our social reality. In my point of view, this is a non common way to say very political things and find a very personal route in movie language.
I'm sure this movie is NOW a reference for young filmmakers and for all artists in the ambient.
