Needed more development
I can see the potential in Astrid Ovalles work here (certainly as an actor), but the trailer is sadly better than the film.
There are some stylish shots, but there are issues with story telling and a lack of context generally. Also, this film isn't believably set in the 50s.
This film is too reliant on minimal dialogue - which usually would be a plus, but in this case due to a lack of any other method of story telling (montage, cutaways, establishing shots, tertiary characters) there's little to go on - thus it's all very 2d and I didn't buy into the romance.
With more development, and clearer direction (particularly with the younger actor who darted out of frame too much, made 20C gestures and expressions and failed to embody a young woman of that decade), this could be a story worth telling.
Potential, yet to be realised.
