Rodriguez's vision of family life takes on stronger thematic resonance even as her film avoids any clear ending or even narrative impetus.
There aren't any big revelations here, just a gentle exploration of the daily rhythms of life.
The withholding of details necessary to engineer the initial lull backfires in the second half, when the lack of specificity leaves the characters ill defined.
Rodriguez presents a series of sharply observed moments in the life of a middle-class Bogotá family, often in unbroken shots in which silence - sometimes companionable, sometimes fraught - is allowed to stretch between the characters.
... it's undeniable that "This Time Tomorrow" keeps pointing at something bigger than itself without ever spelling out what that is.
We're watching an everyday middle-class family's dynamic at play in precise details: in inaction, tone of voice and lazy glances; in presence and absence; and unspoken hostilities and warmth.
Throughout, we keep waiting for some shoe to drop, as Rodriguez's close-ups are so quiet, so insistent, that they suggest something is cracking within.
Lina Rodriguez's excellent sophomore feature overturns the longstanding male perspective of female teenage characters as little more than objects of desire.
