End of the Century (dir. Lucio Castro, Argentina/USA)
When Ocho (Juan Barberini), an Argentine poet on holiday in Barcelona, spots Javi (Ramón Pujol) from the balcony of his apartment, it sparks fantasies of a holiday romance. After fruitlessly searching dating apps for him, the couple have a second missed connection, spotting each other across a Spanish beach. When Javi sees Ocho from his balcony a second time, he knows he can’t let him slip through his fingers again. A tentative “kiss” from the balcony leads to a lust-filled, passionate hook up.
What seems like a one-time encounter between two strangers becomes an epic, decades-spanning relationship, in which time and space refuse to play by the rules.
