A.k.a. "Sidewalls". A clever romantic comedy examining with charm how the architecture of a city conditions the lives of two of its residents, "Medianeras" is a touching, poignant film about love in an ever changing metropolis. Paying unique homage to the city of Buenos Aires, writer/director Gustavo Taretto reflects on how urban chaos, as well as new technologies, can alternately unite and alienate people. Mixing animation, photography and graphic art, he reveals how the isolation and anxiety that come with modern life in a bustling city can inadvertently lead two hearts destined for each other to find themselves despite all odds.
