Our take

So abundant with warmth and vitality is this prescient Argentinian wonder, it’s a miracle that its 73 minutes can contain it. A funny, formally adventurous ode to the arbitrary phases of life, Ana Katz’s monochrome marvel pirouettes between the absurd, the mundane, and the existentially profound.
