Not your typical modern day Argentinian film.
14 August 2007 | by FilmCriticLalitRaoSee all my reviews

Those who have been following developments related to Argentinian cinema in the recent past would be quick to remark that "A year without love" is a charming yet subtle film completely different from other Argentinian films winning laurels at various film festivals. Although the film talks of homosexuality,it is not at all shocking or controversial as there are shots of Buenos Aires gay underworld and it is shown in a serene fashion.In "A year without love",what we find in the film is an intimate portrait of a young man who is quite an artist.He is a poet and teaches French language to make a living.For her first film Anahi Berneri has chosen a bold topic and she succeeds in getting her message made clear.The virtue of this film is that it is not a melodrama and thereby eschews a casual treatment which is generally given to films filled with controversial themes.It is true that "A year without love" is rather slow moving but it must be watched till end to know more about the emotional passage of its protagonist over a period of one year.
