Virtual Spanish Film Festival: Urgent Love
Tuesday, Sept. 21, 7-9:30 p.m.
Fresh and endearing, Urgent Love uses highly original photography and exceptional artwork to create the playful world where Agustina and Pedro fall in love.
Agustina and her mother, an extroverted, sociable fashion designer, have just arrived in the small town of Resignación in Argentina. Her mother’s messy love life has caused Agustina to develop a mental block when it comes to boys. Pedro, a teenage “loser”, falls in love with her and gradually manages to chip away at the emotional wall Agustina has erected. Teenage hormones, the popular kids with their motorbikes and gelled-back hair, the bragging about sexual conquests…everything is intentionally exposed in this subtle, intelligent, and entertaining comedy that dares to be different.
