Movie Info

Sidewalls is a clever romantic comedy examining with charm how the architecture of a city conditions the lives of two of its residents. Taretto pays homage to the city of Buenos Aires as he reflects on how urban chaos, as well as new technologies, can unite people but also keep them apart (as the sidewalls of the title). Mixing animation, photography and graphic art he reveals the characters' isolation and anxieties that are a staple of modern life in a noisy city that nonetheless has an irresistible charm. -- (C) IFC

  • 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.

  • 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.

    October 25, 2011 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • A shrewd, intellectually playful rom-com that delivers the gooey goods...

  • Medianeras may test your tolerance for cuteness, but it's an enchanting modern day fairy-tale cut from the same cloth as 500 Days of Summer and Punch-Drunk Love.

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, but it is only a shame that, in its insistence on being cute, the plot can be pretty clichéd and obvious.

    Very witty romantic comedy. I highly recommend it.

    The movie brilliantly depicts the loneliness that I'm sure is shared and relate able to many single soul around the planet. Sometimes slow yet other time connected to the audience, Sidewalls dwells perfectly as the reflection of modern love and relationship that prevents the society of having 'love at the first sight' moment but perfectly situated at the time we are in. The ending will leaves you wondering and confused which makes it even better at the second viewing. *Edited again on August 2012 8/10.

    Perfect! "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."
