Storyline

An employee about to retire and the young man who is to take over, share five journeys in the work place, an enormous empty warehouse where apparently nothing ever happens. The time going by, marked by a maladjusted clock, the uncomfortable silence between the two people forced to share a space, the inactivity in the warehouse - where paradoxically there is a minute anthill with frantic activity - the despair of waiting, the generational conflict between the two characters, the weight of a great lie... All this will be building an indomitable tie between the two, something that will crate a permanent union: the conscience of losers.

Complex simplicity
6 May 2018 | by linkogeckoSee all my reviews

"Almacenados", basically translating to "In Storage", is a deceptively simple story with two characters, pretty much a single location and a short logline: young Nin lands a job as the caretaker of a warehouse on a Monday and must learn the ropes from the lone, veteran employee Mr. Lino before he retires on Friday. In this simplicity lies an unexpectedly great story with some heavy thematic depth, think "Locke" or "My Dinner with Andre" for comparison.

For starters, Lino is EXTREMELY by-the-book, while Nin is very inquisitive, specially considering the mystery of the job. What is stored in the facility? How often do shipments come in? How are the shipments unloaded? When in the mood, Lino answers Nin's questions and fires back with a few of his own (just what kind of name IS "Nin"?). Slowly, their relationship starts to build... and then ebb, as they find out the small lies they told each other.

The real depth of the film is not really in dealing with the act of lying to others, but rather the lying to oneself. As Nin and Lino reveal more about their lives, the clearer it becomes that the lies they tell are not for the other, in lying they expect to make the realness of their own reality, well... less real. Lies are also at the center of the most heartwarming moments of the film, so the film cleverly avoids making things too clean-cut.

Just as their simple lives allow both Nin and Lino learn from each other, so does this simple story allow us to learn about unexpected relationships, lies and most importantly, what our work can be in this often-empty warehouse that is modern life.
