Asleep in the Sun

Alejandro Chomski takes one of the emblematic works of Adolfo Bioy Casares and builds a movie that takes a muted vision at the “costumbrista” cinema, mixing it with science fiction. The problem is its excessive stiffness and pomposity.


Without appealing to an external narrator or extradiegetic music, the filmmaker gives voice to the elderly people. Downtown ends up being a tribute to what was and no longer is.
