| Innocence as liberating desire
Gastón Pauls is Carlos, an architect in Purmamarca, an isolated town located in the north of Argentina. Its mission is to construct a group of cabins and in his way it runs into with the small Estela (the actress nonprofessional Marina Vilte): one wakes up adolescent of the place with which a friendship begins. "You speak little to be Buenosairean", says the girl to him to Carlos. "And you speak much to be jujean", responds melancholic the personage to him of Pauls: a man separating of its Spanish woman (Ariadna Gil) and who uses the formidable landscape of Purmamarca and the kindness of the girl to cure wounded. But when the history takes his true dimension is when the young Estela falls in love with Carlos, to that it has invited to take a pair coffees and when, lost in the immensity of a salt mine, single at night, Carlos teaches the name to him of some constellations in a starred sky. Into the body of the girl the love of the woman bursts in. The ambiguity of Carlos is perceivable when her wife appears in the town. Will complete the foreseeable dream to love the young innocent or will follow the suffered woman to Buenos Aires whose love no longer produces to him to please? "Una estrella y dos cafés" (A star and two coffees) are a simple and luminous history and that follows two personages without which to tell much but by far that to feel.
