An Argentinean film, a new comedy by Sebastian Borensztein
[An Argentinean and a Chinese united for a cow that fell from the sky]
Roberto’s life has stopped twenty years ago due to a tragic turn of destiny; from that moment on he decided to shut himself in the loneliness of his home, with almost no contact with the outside world until a sudden event wakes him up and brings him back to life.
Jun’s life had a sudden turn due to surprising facts back in China: he travels to Argentina in search of his only relative alive. He is thrown from a taxi and falls at Roberto’s feet, from here starts a forced and strange coexistence between both as Roberto doesn’t speak chinese, Jun doesn’t speak spanish. Roberto tries to take him to the Police Station and the Chinese Embassy but no one can accept him. As Roberto cannot bare to leave him on the street, he takes Jun to live with him and helps him to find his relative. The coexistence between Roberto and Jun will prove that two different men, from the antipodes of the world and from different cultures can be soul mates, united from a mutual fact that both ignore and will discover.
A witty comedy that shows us that life can surprise us in every moment, that not everything is by chance and, believe it or not, is based on real life facts. It is a comedy that reflects the actual society, the relation between people; it shows how a fact can mark us for the rest of our lives, how we can cope with that, how we form our personality due to this, and most importantly, how there’s a always a way to solve it, to get closure, to get over it, because life can surprise you in many different ways and the director shows it here with simplicity, wit, and realism.
