“Immensely likeable.… Audiences will swoon.”—Variety
A love letter to Buenos Aires, Medianeras (also known as Sidewalls) is a delightful and clever romantic comedy about modern living. A man and a woman, with much in common, both live on the same block but have somehow never met. The striking photography is mixed with animation and graphic art to show how urban chaos and new technologies can unite people but also keep them apart. The resulting film has been hailed as an homage to Woody Allen’s Manhattan merged with the charming visual stylishness of Michel Gondry. (96 mins., 35mm)
