Dir. Martin Rejtman (1999).
Set in a world of Buenos Aires slackers, Martin Rejtman’s understated smartcom is a movie in which identities proliferate and disappear. The scenes are often based on trifling non-sequiturs, the low-key compositions feel studied without seeming particularly rigorous, the lighting is never less than flat. It’s the sense of alternate lives that casts the shadows.
