Jara is a shy and lonely 35-year-old security guard at a supermarket on the outskirts of Montevideo. He works the night shift, monitoring the surveillance cameras of the entire building. One night Jara discovers Julia, a 25-year-old cleaning woman, through one of the cameras and is immediately attracted to her. Night after night, he watches her on the cameras while she works. Soon he starts following her after work: to the cinema, the beach and even to a date with another man. Jara's life becomes a series of routines and rituals around Julia, but eventually he finds himself at a crossroads and must decide whether to give up his obsession or confront it.

A very strong four stars here. A poignant picture about the distance between people and the complications of a repressed existence. Really just a very sweet, occasionally funny, and mostly sad slice of cinema. Very Good.

tedious and repetitive scenes leading up to a seriously lackluster climax

Good but slow and a bit creepy in the stalking aspect of it. Could have been done better.

Gigante it´s not just the perfect title for this piece of art, but the best adjective to describe it. Perfect rythm, btw. Excelente trabajo Bienez. Fucking awesome, man! Yeah! Fuck yeah!
