When estranged siblings Luisa and Gabino visit their parents in an eerily deserted mining town in the north of Mexico, the presence of Luisa’s affable actor boyfriend, Paco, gives rise to awkward scenarios. Their father’s seeming ambivalence toward his children is suddenly transformed by his fixation on Paco’s role in a famous narco-themed television series.
As part of the Cinéastes cœur à cœur series, we have invited Nicolás Pereda to select one of his favourite films from the contemporary Canadian cinema repertoire. He has chosen Denis Côté’s TA PEAU SI LISSE.
