End of the Century. 2019. Argentina. Directed and written by Lucio Castro. With Juan Barberini, Ramon Pujol, Mía Maestro. Spanish with English subtitles. 84 min.
An Argentinian man from New York and a Spanish man from Berlin hook up by chance while in Barcelona. What seems like a one-night encounter between two strangers (played by Juan Barberini and Ramón Pujol) becomes an epic, decades-spanning relationship, which Lucio Castro depicts in a nonlinear fashion, and in which time and space refuse to play by the rules. Castro’s inventive, enigmatic debut feature is consistently surprising, turning a love story into a cosmic voyage with no clear beginning or end. Courtesy Cinema Guild.
