Drama
Hoping to break into movies in the U.S., an Argentine soap opera actor travels to New York and begins auditioning for roles; the acting gigs never materialize, however, and he's forced to take odd jobs to make ends meet. This international coproduction recalls Hong Sang-soo's Night and Day (2008) in its tale of a self-absorbed artist navigating life in a foreign country, but unlike Hong, cowriter-director Julia Solomonoff never examines the hero's shortcomings or wonders what makes him tick. Because the characterization is genial and superficial, the film feels too lightweight for a drama, but it's never funny enough to be considered a comedy. In English and subtitled Spanish.
Director: Julia Solomonoff
Producer: Lúcia Murat and Isabel Coixet
Cast: Guillermo Pfening, Elena Roger, Rafael Ferro, Cristina Morrison, Paola Baldion, Petra Costa, Mirella Pascual and Michael Nicholson
