Shy teenager Andrés lives in the Argentine city of La Plata and cycles between school, work and home listening to punk rock. One night he finds out that his idol, the lead singer of his favorite band, has committed suicide. His religious mother is worried about him and takes him to the local evangelic church, where he, without putting up much resistance, joins a youth group. Here he meets Alex, the cool guitarist of a band practicing upstairs, and is instantly drawn to him.Written by
This movie about teenager Andrés could have been so much better, because the story is interesting. Not that much happens, but it's a real coming of age movie. And for me it was interesting, because we don't see many movies about this subject from Argentina.
Too bad that the director decided it has to be a sort of arty style. So you get dizzy from all the long shots turning around in rooms several times. And almost the half of the movie is out of focus or at least the biggest part of the screen. As if was meant to be some semi-documentary shot with a home-camera. But even the cheapest home-cameras have auto-focus, so you don't get this result. While the camera is very close on the subject you get a strange layout of the screen.
So I gave the movie a 5, mainly because of the story and not the way it was filmed.
