Against the backdrop of modern urban alienation in bustling Buenos Aires, two perfect strangers who live across the street in their shoebox apartments--the agoraphobic web designer, Martín, and the disenchanted architect, Mariana--find themselves trapped in a sea of nearly three million inhabitants. To make matters worse, even though they live on the same street, swim in the same pool, and walk side by side, those two sensitive long-time loners have never met. But, somehow, the high and impenetrable wall that keeps them apart, may be the very thing that can bring them together. Will Mariana and Martín ever find out that they are, indeed, kindred spirits?Written by
As soon as the movie began, I was hooked. The gorgeous shots of the buildings of Buenos Aires had my eyes glued to screen. As the story began, I was welcomed into the lives of Martin and Mariana, two people living in isolation from the big crowded world just outside their door. With the comforting mood of the movie, I felt as though I was there with them, living a peaceful and quiet existence, completely cut off from the busy and fast paced world surrounding me. It was nice. I felt relaxed and at ease as I watched the two characters struggle with relationships, phobias, and just life in general. If I were to use one word to describe this movie, it would be beautiful, but not just because of the gorgeous cinematography. I thought the movie was beautiful because it was real. It told a story about two imperfect characters living imperfect lives in their imperfect homes because that's what life is, imperfectly beautiful.
