| Fun short comedy about strangers and love at first sight
In El Columpio (English: The Merry Go Round), a man and a woman are waiting for the train in a deserted station. Through their thoughts, we find out that they seem interested in one another, despite being complete strangers. They try to show their intent, but their signals seem to be misread. Will they ever be able to share their feelings for one another?

This film is a comedic but quite real take into what goes on in the heads of people when they find someone they really like. It's funny to watch the two give out signals that are missed or totally misread, but I suppose that is just how it is in the game of love. All in all, El Columpio is a fun film about the hesitations and ridiculous things we do to get the attention of someone we find interesting.
