The grass is always greener on the other side in LOS DUENOS, the feature debut of thespians and playwrights-turned-filmmakers Agustín Toscano and Ezequiel Radusky that’s set on an Argentinean farming estate in the northern province of Tucumán. The film unfolds almost entirely on the large domain, where the workers secretly enjoy the comforts of their absent employers’ mansion, only to have to scuttle and revert back to serfdom the second their bosses’ daughters fly in from Buenos Aires. in a pleasing symmetry, the titular owners also desire things they don’t have – such as an employment that gives their life focus and meaning – turning the film into a bleakly comic exploration of how intemperance exists across class divides. (Boyd van Hoeij)
