Lucho Bender's quirky Argentinean feature (2000) intertwines three separate narratives that take place on Christmas Eve: a doctor carrying a mysterious box tries to seduce a woman in red, a dentist searching for a toy robot to give his son winds up assisting the police as they break into a home, and a novelist trying to get to Buenos Aires winds up in a factory room where it seems the Last Supper has just ended. The script's long, aphoristic conversations and haunting religious imagery are lightened by strangely funny moments (walking through a plastic nativity scene, the novelist is startled by a live sheep). Exceptional performances by Luis Machin, Gaston Pauls, Pablo Cedron, and Silke distinguish this small, quiet gem. In Spanish with subtitles. 100 min.
