FILM: Gustavos Tarretto’s Medianeras . October 24th, London

A romantic comedy with a nod to Woody Allen’s Manhattan where boy fails to meet girl across the crowded cityscape of twenty-first century Buenos Aires. From the creative mind og GUstavos Tarretto (Argentina) this Monday at the BFI London Film Festival.

Martín (Javier Drolas) is a web designer addicted to gaming who won’t leave his shoe-box apartment. He’s seeing a psychiatrist twice a week in the hope of tackling his panic attacks, listlessness, neurosis, insecurity and stress. His girlfriend left her dog with him for a few weeks when she left for the US, but she never returned, so Martín has both the pet and the phobias to deal with. Mariana (Pilar López de Ayala) is an architect now working as a window dresser who has just broken up with her partner after a four-year relationship. She too has her phobias and foibles – including a fear of lifts and an obsession with Where’s Wally? books. Martín and Mariana live close to each other; but in the madness of the 21st-century urban metropolis, it’s all too easy to miss the person across the street when you’re looking for love.

Argentine director Gustavo Taretto’s debut feature is a quirky, unconventional romantic comedy set against the backdrop of contemporary Buenos Aires. Art, angst and architecture are imaginatively brought together in a witty, playful homage to a stylish city and its idiosyncratic inhabitants.
