After the theft of his motorcycle, Lucio bums aimlessly around Buenos Aires drifting from one arcade and record store to the next, indulging in short chats with friends and, more often, setting out onto the streets alone.
Martín Rejtman’s debut is today regarded as the film that launched the New Argentine Cinema, and prefigures his trademark style of comedies imbued with a languid melancholy and hilariously deadpan humor. Presented in its recent restoration, this now-cult film is always ripe for (re)discovery.
