In his new film, Alejo Moguillansky baldly and skillfully articulates the world of dance –specifically, the shooting of a documentary about a series of ballets– with the story of a break-up and a romance.

Our take

Moguillansky’s next feature after Castro (between which he edited a film by the great Matías Piñeiro), continues the director’s surprises, wittiness, and cheerfully off-kilter filmmaking approach willing to take risks and make jokes. Dance, love, a film within a film—this one knows few boundaries.
