Movie Info

A tale weaving together multiple stories, which revolve around the alienated, unruly twenty-year-olds--in the Buenos Aires nightlife--who are looking for love, adventure and a quick lay. Roller-blades on their feet and a sense of emptiness in their spirit, they try to fill their hearts by selling themselves to men and women. Reni is a singer in a small local rock band that has regular gigs at various urban nightclubs. Andres is a prostitute who has sex with other men whenever and wherever he can (even in front of cash-dispensers). The two meet by chance, they feel attracted to each other, they make love and start roaming the city together. Then they split up. The tale continues to journey through nights full of sex and music, immersed in a game of lights and shadows in the Argentine capital. However, a hundred pesos can't replace feelings. Love can't be bought.

A venturesome, beautifully realized psychological mood piece that reveals its first-time feature director's understanding of the expressive power of the camera.

The characters are never more than sketches ... which leaves any true emotional connection or identification frustratingly out of reach.

The film's hackneyed message is not helped by the thin characterizations, nonexistent plot and pretentious visual style.

Dec 23, 2002

Though its atmosphere is intriguing ... the drama is finally too predictable to leave much of an impression.

Ah, the travails of metropolitan life! Alas, another breathless movie about same!

Dec 17, 2002 | Full Review…

The leads are so unmemorable, despite several attempts at lengthy dialogue scenes, that one eventually resents having to inhale this gutter romancer's secondhand material.
