Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

Jonás Cuarón (son of Y Tu Mamá También director Alfonso Cuarón) adopts an innovative approach in this offbeat drama, which is made up entirely of photographs, in the manner of Chris Marker's 1962 sci-fi gem La Jetée. Cuarón took the snaps over the course of a year and organised them into a storyline that chronicles the blossoming relationship between Molly (Eireann Harper), an American college student on an exchange programme in Mexico City, and Diego (Diego Cataño), the 14-year-old son of her landlady. At the outset, the technique of using voiceovers to animate the still sequences feels a touch self-conscious. But the initial inconsequentiality of Molly's self-obsessed musings about her disastrous love life and Diego's immature prattlings about his agonising crush on the inaccessible "gringa", eventually give way to the touching realisation that this unlikely couple have more in common than they first thought.
