After getting dumped through a long letter, the separation of sound engineer Loro begins. Slowly and throughout the film, his ex-girlfriend collects her things from their old apartment. While recording Argentinean ballet companies and the dance-theater group Krapp, Loro meets dancer Luciana. Shortly after that, she shows up with a big pregnant belly. But one day, Luciana quits rehearsals and leaves. That’s when Loro starts dancing, declares to be in love, and decides to go looking for her in San Francisco, Córdoba. Alejo Moguillansky boldly and skillfully articulates the world of dance – specifically, the shooting of a documentary about a series of ballets – with the story of a break-up and a romance. There is an undoubtedly shrewd view that profoundly and originally wonders about a series of processes: the creative one in the rehearsals of the dance and theater companies, the work-related one in the filming crew; the one of development and growth in the pregnant woman; the break-up process and, finally, a couple’s process of falling in love. (Violeta Bava)
