City in Heat

Argentina's economic crisis reverberates through this 2006 romantic drama about middle-aged friends in Buenos Aires. After a financial debacle drives one of them to suicide, the survivors are jolted into a new awareness of life and torn between mourning their pal's death and taking new chances on love. Writer-director Hernan Gaffet sets most of the story in a bar, which gives it a static, talky quality; only a desperate robber and homeless woman who wander in from the street serve to remind us of the wider chaos outside. In Spanish with subtitles. 110 min.
