A long night's journey into day: Victor, a street hustler in the Santa Fe and Pueyrredón neighborhoods of Buenos Aires, from the evening of November 1, All Saints Day, to the dawn of November 2, All Souls Day. Victor's odyssey takes him from clients to friends to a gay gym then a hotel room and an all-night café. He plays pick-up soccer with kids whose parents are going through trash or waiting in parks. A vendor gives him a chrysanthemum. It seems he's being followed, and on the night streets, death is close at hand. Can Victor survive until dawn?Written by
This film follows Victor, a young man who's making his living on the tough streets of Buenos Aires. The night in question is November 1, all souls eve.
There's the policeman who takes his pay for protection out in trade. There's a private party among some diplomats in a posh hotel suite. And among these we see Victor as he wanders somewhat aimlessly through the occurrences that make up his life. There is some skin appeal in his scenes at a 30th floor health club and later in a 35 Peso a night motel room complete with jacuzzi but overall what we see is much grittier and decidedly less beautiful.
We meet a few of his fellow hustlers and buddies as well as some past tricks and even the homeless street people that Victor associates with.
While well made and generally easy on the eye this movie, like Victor seems aimless and while interesting for what it is, its not something that's easily loved.
