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.

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.
Absolutely delicious. A must-see for architects. Unlike Sean Ellis' "Cashback" (2006), the transition from short to full length feature did not hurt "Sidewalls". This puts most of contemporary Hollywood romantic comedies to shame. I fear yet another unnecessary remake for suburbanites who cannot read subtitles..
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.
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
Absolutely adored it! The entire Waldo in the City concept was brilliantly touching. Those complaining about the slowness don't seem to realize how the film is reflecting that feeling of loneliness and how it takes time to find your Waldo.
Ampliando a série 'encontros e desencontros' contemporâneos, "Medianeras" é um interessante exemplar de como seria (é!) a vida mediada pela internet, quando a opressão do 'mundo real' acaba por alijar o sujeito do convívio com seus pares. Bem realizado,em alguns momentos chega a aparentar uma comédia romântica corriqueira e enfada, parecendo mais longo do que é, mas várias ideias soam sinceras e acabam por envolver.
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.
