Cesar was “away” for two years, now he works in a small balloon factory in suburban Buenos Aires. All we know from his past is the existence of his young estranged son, whose mother died in an accident. Will Cesar give the child away for adoption or will he try to become a father after all?
“LOS GLOBOS’ greatest virtues are its manner of exposition and its use of ellipsis. Furniture, costumes, locations – all of these elements convey distinct sociological coordinates. A magnificent shot summarizes González’s precision behind the camera: the child’s grandfather introduces himself to his former son-in-law and punches him so hard that he dislocates his jaw. The shot which displays this action and its consequences lasts only a few seconds. The ellipsis from the punch to the character driving his brand-new motorcycle summarizes González’s extraordinary narrative poetics. And this is just one example among many.” (Roger Koza)
