Gabino, Luisa, and Paco live in a small apartment in Mexico City. They don’t have cold water, their refrigerator has just broke, and their dog has gone missing. When tensions in the house begin to rise, they decide to take a trip to the forest.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
If my fridge ever breaks I will spend at least ten minutes listening to it for signs of life, and another ten minutes inserting bowls of water to see if they, later on, has cooled or not. What I won't do is give up.
I don't know what I want to do, I don't know what to do, I know I must do something, but I don't want to do anything while time passes.But if I continued to wait, something hopeful would come & change my life drastically.....although young people think that, such a thing cannot come. It's curse called "Youth". This movie depicts that precisely, but finally dir makes them search for hope by their foot. Deeply moving.
More a sketch of a relationship between a young couple, their needy friend, an invisible dog and some dodgy plumbing. It goes nowhere, you could start in the middle and then watch the end before the beginning, it wouldnt matter. But that's the idea I guess. Being together - expressing feelings, resolving issues, just getting by - all the banalities that make up genuine lasting relationships.
Lente, longue, tranquille mais aussi triste observation de personnages sans argent ni but ... un sentiment de gâchis ... vient-il du film, de l'histoire de ces 3 jeunes ou de la société mexicaine ??? ====== Slow, long, quiet but sad observation of characters without money or a goal in the life ... this mess ... is it just about the film, the story of these three young people or the Mexican society ???
Retrato de una pareja mexicana sumergida en el hastío propio de las complicaciones de la vida diaria donde percibir los problemas como situaciones externas que no podemos cambiar parece ser la cura para el malestar. Legítima por el desarrollo de sus personajes y sus patrones conductuales.
