Los globos is a deceptively prosaic title for a debut feature that quietly yet relentlessly seeks to uncover its protagonists’ raw core. Mariano González directs and stars as César, a taciturn man fresh out of rehab, whose carefully orchestrated routine and emotional balance are upended by parenthood. González’s actual son and father play the supporting roles. Fernando Lockett’s intimate cinematography viscerally captures the awkwardness of social gestures, against love’s tenacity. Fatherhood and manhood collide—if not mutually exclusive, certainly at times tenuous and frightening.
Born in Buenos Aires in 1977, Mariano González started his career as an actor studying under Norman Brisky, Julio Chávez and Ricardo Bartis, among others. He played parts in films and worked in theatre and television. He also teaches acting. Los globos screenplay was one of the winners of the first feature competition of the Argentinian National Film Institute and is Mariano’s directorial debut.
