*Alejo Moguillansky (director) attends to the screening

From the clash of two enemy elements, can fresh beauty, comedy, and ideology emanate instead of destruction and chaos? Alejo Moguillansky -a filmmaker who still films and edits with his own hands as a bricoleur– has created his best and most entertaining film (a rehearsed fiction that won everything at BAFICI) as the vindication of a possible Third Way, both political and aesthetic. Something heroic in a country as polarized as Argentina, in which the right (the power) is “in the hands of dangerous men”, and the left (in the opposition) “is not the bass of the orchestra but nonexistent rattlesnakes.” Moguillansky’s approach is a model of citizenship whose behaviour comes from stupor in front of art. Like that musician of the school of Stockhausen obsessed with Morricone that supports the story and thanks his conflict of opposites playing (badly) to the piano “Giù la testa!”.
