Sidewalls (Medianeras) by Gustavo Taretto, 2011 (NR)

with Javier Drolas, Pilar López de Ayala, Inés Efron, Adrián Navarro, Rafael Ferro, Carla Peterson

Separated by the wall their apartments share, Mariana and Martín are the perfect couple. They have the same quirks, same tastes, same ideals and even the same neuroses -- they're a match made in heaven. There's just one problem: They've never met.

A very cute romantic comedy and social drama. The poetic narration by the main characters is the best thing I believe, mixed with elements of the architecture of Buenos Aires, beautiful, smart, witty. Mariana is a little bit too depressed, but weird enough to get my attention. Martín is the typical geek, better closed in his apartment. You follow them in their life for over a year, and it is pleasant, funny, interesting, well acted. In other words, a successful romantic comedy, with an interesting viewpoint to a beautiful city.
