I LOVE YOU SO MUCH THAT I JUST DON’T KNOW / TE QUIERO TANTO QUE NO SÉ
(Lautaro García Candela, Argentina, 2017, 80 min. In Spanish with English subtitles)
Francisco can’t stop thinking about Paula, an old friend he recently ran into for the first time in years. When he sees on Facebook that she’s in a bar nearby, he goes out in search of her. But along the way, his brother asks him for help with his girlfriend, he runs into an old friend, plays a football match almost against his will, receives an old film reel that contains a hidden movie, and has to rescue a friend from a bad date.
”A critic friend of mine says that movies no longer dialogue with history, but are the filmmaker’s subconscious, filmed for the world to see. He means it pejoratively, but it seems to me that it is a good way to define my film. The political and the historical are in the air: it is impossible not to be contemporary.” –Lautaro García Candela
