Synopsis


When Gustavo (a marvellously deapan Esteban Bigliardi), an Argentinian living in Chile, and his Chilean wife Vanessa (Manuela Oyarzun) separate, they need to agree on how to manage their shared lives as both are yoga instructors. So, when Vanessa takes the apartment and leaves the studio they shared, Gustavo is left with a yoga studio but nowhere to live. Soon Gustavo must deal with increasingly absurd situations and relationships in order to land back on his feet. Due to the accumulated stress, Gustavo injures his knee and is prevented from continuing with his yoga practice. So he sets out to a retreat in search of inner peace and gradually aims to get his life back on track. From writer/director Martín Rejtman, this enjoyable, witty satire, set in the world of wellness and featuring a range of neurotic characters, is an incisive absurdist comedy about the search for enlightenment and happiness.

Awards & Reviews
