Product Details

A Spanish photographer (Antonio Resines) moves to New York with the idea of conquering the international art scene. Instead, he finds himself coping with the vagaries of the English language and the hardships of bachelor life in Manhattan. Director Colomo has a whimsical way of setting his camera at a distance from the action and observing the underplayed reactions of his actors who swallow the story's most outrageous twists as if they've just been handed the script a few seconds before. Resines is a gifted comedian whose immovable wide-eyed expression reflects his inertia and complacency. The amateur supporting cast sets him off perfectly, especially in the hilarious scenes depicting the restrained diplomacy of the art business. Watch for a cameo by Whit Stillman (Metropolitan, Barcelona) who was also a production assistant and script doctor on this great little indie.
