The Mad Half Hour

“I think this isn’t working out. We should call it off,” says Juan to his boyfriend Pedro in the middle of a tennis court. What he is giving up on is not just the match, but their whole relationship. Strolling in the streets of Buenos Aires afterwards, they face unexpected meetings and strange moments, that may help them figure out what is really going on between the two of them. The film premiered in the competition of the last Berlin film festival.
