In Montevideo, Jara works the graveyard shift monitoring security cameras at a supermarket. He's about 30, solitary, quiet, and big. He watches TV, likes heavy metal, and sometimes works as a bouncer at a disco. One night he notices one of the cleaning crew, Julia; he watches her via the cameras as she works, then follows some days as she goes to an Internet café, the beach, shopping, or the movies. He stays out of her sight and never talks to her. Thinking she may be hiding somewhere in the store with a male co-worker, Jarita breaks some rules and gets suspended. Then, while watching her one evening, she meets a man. What will Jara do?Written by
A film from Uruguay about a stalker who is a gentle giant yet one tough mean hombre who just wants to love his fellow grocery store worker. But she doesn't really know he exists. Who doesn't know that story, right?! So he follows her. Yes, in America this is stalking and could get you hauled in for questioning by the police and possibly a restraining order. But in Montevideo in this movie it's sweet. We get a great performance from our lead actor, even if it's just through his actions that we get to feel him. It's not so much a dark and disturbing stalking story as it is a love story but far from the sappy romancey crap girls wanna drag you to the theater to pay twenty bucks to see. This has a fantastic indie film feel and how often do you get to see what Montevideo looks like?!
6.8 / 10 stars
