| About overcoming losses
A kid bumps a car against a pole. Life asks him to go slowly. Through some signs, we can see that he has an anger inside him. But life won't give him much space to live it. Just the opposite, it will ask him to move on, solve the problems, go further, fix the car, find the missing piece. Everything, like an yogurt in a broken fridge, tends to rot if he doesn't do anything. And this day will give him encounters that at first sight might seem aleatory but soon reveal themselves as a ground to learn a lesson and being able to return home. This lesson could be summarized in the old man's gesture of letting the dog go once he noticed he seems happier. "But it's your dog", says the kid. He still has something to learn about dealing with losses.

The wide of the shots is remarkable. It seems to give space to let the character breathe. He's free to do what he wants in the space the director creates for him. Yet, he's clearly being watched by a greater observer, the shot starts before he gets in, anticipating his presence, pointing him the way.

Fernando Eimbcke's film configure itself as a beautiful ode to life. How luck can bring happenings that will poke us, ask us to react and not sink in sorrow.
