Movie Info

When Ocho (Juan Barberini), a 30-something Argentine poet on vacation in Barcelona, spots Javi (Ramón Pujol), a Spaniard from Berlin, from the balcony of his Airbnb, the attraction is subtle but persistent. After a missed connection on the beach, a third chance encounter escalates to a seemingly random hookup. But are these two merely beautiful strangers in a foreign city or are they part of each other's histories-and maybe even their destinies?

  • Like 'Sliding Doors' with added subtlety and soul, this swooning love story spins the idea of 'what if?' into something deeply romantic.

    Top Critic
  • The film is like finding one of Proust's madeleines tucked inside a short story by Borges, where it keeps vanishing and reappearing.

    February 20, 2020 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • It balances what is with what might have been and what could still be, and, although the result is maybe a bit less substantial than Castro intended, there is a certain literary elegance in the way he sketches it out.

    February 20, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Castro excels in showing how ostensibly small discoveries, like a gutting line in a book or a song that gives perfect shape to a moment, can be bright markers in life, signifying a beginning, a middle, or an end.

    October 18, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Overall, this is elegant, transcendent work, both modern and nostalgic.

    September 25, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • [T]his seductive drama, written, directed and edited by Lucio Castro in his feature debut, carves its own niche as an intimate, time-jumping look at life and love's fortuitous twists and turns.
