Verónica Chens Vagón fumador is a lugubrious depiction of youth and love in Buenos Aires. Andrés is a 20-year-old taxi boy who sails through the night on roller blades when hes not having sex with men in cash machine vestibules. Reni, also 20, is a singer in a struggling punk band. They meet one evening when she forgets her bank card inside a cash machine. Together they prowl the streets of the city searching for truth and love among the hustlers and misfits. Shot almost entirely at night, Vagón fumador resembles a netherworld from which there is no escape. The cavernous boulevards and grand plazas of Buenos Aires take on a surreal quality in the dim glow of street lights, making the characters pursuit of lifes purpose seem a cruel joke. In this shadowy city, the only hope of escape is through illusion. (Cleo Cacoulidis)
