Movie Info

A Year Without Love director/screenwriter Anahi Berneri is the driving creative force behind this affecting tale of an ageing Buenos Aires actress whose outward superficiality masks a deep sense of loneliness and fragility. There was a time when Erni Levier (Silvia Pérez) was one of the most sought-after actresses in Brazil, but these days most of her roles consist of commercial endorsements and walk-on television roles. When Erni isn't attending gala premiers or other industry-related events, she spends most of her time updating her webpage from her studio apartment. A single woman by choice, Erni is alone simply because she chooses to be. It's been two years since Erni has returned to her small hometown of Las Flores, but now she is going back to celebrate the fifteenth birthday of her beloved niece Ana (Martina Juncadella). But while Erni's relative always greed her cordially, there has always been an obvious undercurrent of resentment towards the fading starlet. Even so, Erni's close bond with Ana will not wither due to the small-minded whispers of others, and as aunt and niece sit enjoying themselves by the pool at Erni's hotel they soon catch the attention of handsome Roberto (Luciano Cáceres). While Ana's immediate family are terminally traditional, Erni's independent spirit and unconventional ways prove to the impressionable young girl that women need not always give into the roles assigned to them by society, and that occasionally questioning the responsibilities that most folks accept without question might be the only way of ever achieving true greatness. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

... a cogent, almost intuitive study of female self-identity and body perception, and would be inconceivable without star Silvia Perez.
