Critic Reviews for Sidewalls
With its themes of alienation in the Internet age and cutesy indie-ish trimmings, the film will feel familiar to anyone who's seen a bittersweet romantic comedy from Sundance.
The preordained story line is clear from the outset, yet Taretto's knack for engineering clever near-misses keeps us guessing about how and when the happy ending will arrive.
It's hard to truly hate any movie whose ending revolves around a clever Where's Waldo? gag. It's also near impossible to take it seriously for that exact same reason.
Leandro Martinez's eye-pleasing cinematography complements Taretto's literate script, although the Hollywood ending is jarring.
Smart, wordy and sweetly sympathetic to lives lived online, "Sidewalls" coasts on Martín and Mariana's twin voice-overs, alternate musings on themselves and their city.
Audience Reviews for Sidewalls
Its playful take on urban isolation and how internet and technology draw people apart is spot-on, with a bittersweet sense of humor that made me smile at its logical deductions, being only a shame though that, in its insistence on being cute, the plot can be pretty clichéd and obvious.
Very witty romantic comedy. I highly recommend it.
"I'm convinced that separations, divorces, domestic violence,
the excess of cable TVstations, the lack of communication,
listlessness,apathy, depression, suicide, neuroses, panic attacks,
obesity, tenseness, insecurity, hypochondria, stress and a sedentary lifestyle are attributable to architects and builders. I suffer from all of these illnesses except suicide."
