Argentina | 2019 | 108 minutes | Marco Berger | in Spanish with English subtitles
The sexual tension is heightened when two coworkers in Buenos Aires find themselves in close quarters—as new roommates. Juan (Alfonso Barón) is in denial about the emotional side of his sexual attraction, while single father Gabriel (Gaston Re) is discovering the possibility of a more authentic, honest romantic future. Their sexual relationship, however, ignites the toxic masculinity keeping their budding romance at a distance, against a backdrop of family obligations and societal disapproval. Director Marco Berger (PLAN B, SQFF 2010) fleshes out the erotic—and occasionally humorous—interaction between them in this insightful and resonant romantic drama.
This film is deaf-friendly.
