Directed by Lucho Bender
Christmas Eve is anything but merry on a hot and humid night in Buenos Aires
when everything seems to be going wrong. The trying times of several
characters are followed in this comedy that manages to elicit warm emotions
without resorting to cheap sentimentality or diminishing its dark
undercurrents. Writer-director Lucho Bender's debut feature was nominated
for 10 Argentinean Film Critics Association Awards, winning for Best First
Film and Best New Actor (Alfredo Casero). Spanish with English subtitles.
