With poignance and compassion, Carissa Carlos's gentle drama Besos en la Frente observes the heartbreaking conflict of intentions and signals between two friends with a considerable age difference between them. China Zorilla stars as the octogenarian Mercedes Arévalo, a Buenos Aires resident who in eight long decades of life has never once experienced a satisfying adult love affair or relationship. On an emotional level, Mercedes is very much still an adolescent girl. The future suddenly brightens when into her life waltzes a dashing young Uruguayan screenwriter, Sebastián Miguez (Leonardo Sbaraglia), rebounding from a romantic split and temporarily visiting the metropolis in search of new scriptwriting assignments. In time, a meaningful friendship blossoms, and Mercedes in fact invites Sebastián to move into her house. He accepts, perceiving the arrangement as innocent and harmless, but in reality, Mercedes has fallen deeply in love with her new roommate and tries to actualize her feelings with an unchecked display of physical affection. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
