A complicated relationship develops between Alejandra, an established literary editor, and María, a precocious student in her last year of high school. At first, the sexual chemistry creates an illusion of compatibility, however it is not long before Alejandra’s requests for candlelit dinners and conversations about books conflict with María’s desire to party until dawn. Filmed in black and white with a nod to the New Wave films of the 60s and 70s, this film has a retro visual style that cleverly mirrors the stifling pretension and hedonistic naiveté of its main characters.

Soft black and white images, sophisticated camera work and excellent performances. Director Raúl Fuentes elevates the tale above the clichéd “girl-meets-girl-stories’ - it is a study of clashing characters and a generation gap. World Cinema Amsterdam

Una intensa relación se desarrolla entre Alejandra, una establecida editora, y María, una joven que cursa su último año de bachiller. Al principio, su fuerte química sexual crea una ilusión de compatibilidad, pero todo empieza a caerse cuando Alejandra quiere tener charlas de libros y cenas románticas, mientras María quiere salir de fiesta. Filmada en blanco y negro, con un tono de la Nueva Ola de los años 60 y 70, la cinta inteligentemente representa las sofocantes pretensiones y el hedonismo ingenuo de sus personajes.
