MEDIANERAS

Argentina / Germany / Spain, 2011 (MIFF 2011, Networked)

Director: Gustavo Taretto

MEDIANERAS

"[A] sweet, hip homage to Buenos Aires and love in the visual, virtual age." - Hollywood Reporter

With all the big-city bustle and romantic neuroses of a Woody Allen film, Medianeras is a portrait of two star-crossed thirty-somethings, isolated in their tiny apartments, insulated by an online world of virtual relations.

Mariana and Martin are practically neighbours, with all those little things in common that should make for a perfect match, but crossing paths amid the urban confusion is a battle in itself. As they traverse bad relationships and lonely nights they find that sometimes you need to knock down a wall to see what's right in front of you.
