Bright lights . . . lost souls
Young Argentinean director Alexis Dos Santos fulfills the promise of his acclaimed debut Glue With Unmade Beds, a sexy tale of two young people adrift in London. Axl (Fernando Tielve of Guillermo Del Toro's The Devil's Backbone) is a Spanish kid trying to track down the British man who fathered him 20 years ago.
He discovers his biological father is a real estate broker and pretends to be in the market for an apartment just so he can get to know his dad. Vera ((Deborah FranÃ§ois of The Page Turner and the award-winning L'Enfant) tries hard not to fall in love - she won't even tell a new boyfriend her name - but sometimes the heart knows better. They both wind up living in a wild, bohemian apartment and embark on adventures of discovery and romance. With driving pop music, nights of ecstatic dancing and mornings spent untangling threesomes, Unmade Beds is a dazed and confused tale of youthful possibility.
