In the heart of Montevideo, the affable but secretly troubled Leo wraps himself in the comfort of his small rented room, unmotivated to finish his college thesis or find a job and content with infrequent visits from his girlfriend. After their six-month relationship ends, Leo begins to break out of his shell by cruising the Internet for a new companion, enlisting the aid of a sympathetic therapist along the way. However, it isn’t until he has a chance reunion with a classmate that he is forced to consider the true meaning of his reclusive lifestyle and a future outside the metaphoric safety of his room. Featuring an affecting soundtrack and an equally endearing cast of characters, director Enrique Buchichio’s affirming drama is a unique vision of isolation and coming-of-age set against a modern tale of romance and friendship.

Although Leo was a cutie, the movie plot was slow and never took off. I did however enjoy the coming of age discoveries Leo experienced if only they were more clearer for the viewer to stay interested.
cute leo. but this movie was bland like rice cakes and i just kept waiting for the plot. big disappointment
This movie touched me! <3 it!
great movie! endearing characters, moving performances, and a plotline many will relate to, and all will enjoy.
Good story and really well put together. A little tortured perhaps and maybe could have a little better resolution in some regards, but really a good self-discovery chronicle with many parts that ring true. The lead actor was really very good, too, aside from being adorable.
I very much enjoyed this moving movie, We all share some of the situations I iked the caution displayed in Leo sharring his personal feelings.
Exelent...I didnt know it was filmed in Uruguay until I saw tha plate on the car,however I was so invilved in the movie I suspect it, the special Spanish accent from my own country move me the most and the coming out the closet story which was mine too really was so well done. I know people will criticize the s lowliness and the cinematography but the content and how the spirit of the script get into our souls is amazingly beautiful. Thanks to refresh my memories of my youth and my lovely country...
A little slow, but rings true to life, character of Leo well developed, story told obliquely but artistically. Acting throughout outstanding. Excellent production, cinematography, direction
Good characters and development. Enjoyed the naturalness of Leo's growth.
This movie really pulled on my heart strings. If you liked El Dia Que Me Amen, you will probably like this as well. The theme that resonates the most with me is the powerful force of simple kindness, and how its unexpected surfacing can show how desperately we needed it. I like that this is a movie about connecting with other people, and how the right approach is not always evident. The music is also incredible. Overall, a very well done film.
