Medianeras is the story of Mariana, Martín and the city. Martín and Mariana live on the same block, in opposite buildings. But they don’t manage to meet each other. They cross each other, not knowing about the other’s existence.

La fotografía es hermosa y la historia está bien construída. No busca reflexión de parte de los espectadores aunque los diálogos lleguen a ser profundos. Es chistosa, pero no es comedia. Es romántica, pero tampoco es de amor. Gran película.
Wally-love in this cute-to-the-sky romance about contemporary relationships. It's Architecture on Screen meets Bubble Gum Cinema meets Noah Baumbach meets Where's Wally Wonder. Now I gotta travel to Buenos Aires immediately.
I really liked the atmosphere of this film. Solitude, alienation, a little bit of gloominess reminds me Lost in Translation. But all in all, the whole film is quite vivacious. And of course, that Wally thing was very very cheerful.
The super slow pace almost made give up of watching it. But the ending was surprisingly satisfying. The urban architecture photography was amazing. I would have given it 5 out of 5 if only it had been paced a bit faster.
Absolutely delicious. A must-see for architects. Unlike Sean Ellis' Cashback (2006), the transition from short to full length feature did not hut. Sidewalls puts most of contemporary Hollywood romantic comedies to shame. I fear yet another unnecessary remake for the multiplex crowd who cannot read subtitles.
Maybe a 2.5 would be more appropriate. Sometimes it felt really organic, but others it felt like a very calculated and infuriating quirkiness just for the sake of it. I should've loved it, but it just didn't click with me the way I thought it would. I loved the themes, but I just didn't care enough for the characters.
A modern, information-age tale of looking for love in post-GFC Buenos Aires. Medianeras (literally meaning parting wall) also muses on architecture and the current compartmentalisation trend of modern life. It's cute and thought provoking. 3 stars
