Nadie nos mira
1h42m | Directed by Julia Solomonoff | Argentina, Colombia, Brazil, USA | Drama
Dissatisfied with a complicated relationship, an actor in Buenos Aires moves to New York City for a promised role and a new start. When the project stalls he chooses menial work rather than give up on his acting dreams, a decision that puts him on the level of any other struggling undocumented immigrants, despite his whiteness and connections to the privileged. When he loses the trust of a generous friend, his life unravels, ultimately leading him to reconcile his imperfect situation back home with the harsh reality of an uncertain future in the U.S.

Solomonoff here exhibits a scrupulous control of her material and milieu that’s all too rare in episodic, humanistic indie-movie life studies.

Pfening delivers a masterful, low-key performance that subtly unpacks the psychology of how immigration can turn lives into lies.
