Carlos Sorin's aptly titled tripartite drama follows three individuals on separate but intersecting journeys to San Julian, Argentina. Don Justo's (Antonio Benedictis) trip is spurred by the knowledge that his lost dog has been found in the town. Roberto (Javier Lombardo) hopes to woo a recently widowed woman by bringing a cake to her child's birthday. Maria (Javiera Bravo) hopes to win the grand prize on a television game show. All three come away with something similar to what they hoped for, but none of their journeys assumes a straight and simple line. "A fresh, lovingly tender, cinematically shimmering film" (B. Ruby Rich,
San Francisco Bay Guardian
). In Spanish with English subtitles.
