A Mysterious World

by Rodrigo Moreno

A Mysterious World


Boris is stunned when his girlfriend Ana asks for some time apart. He doesn´t know why and she can´t explain it. Some time can mean so many things. How much time apart? A week, a month, years? During this imprecise period of uncertainty, Boris is left at the mercy of chance. His life transforms into an erratic urban journey: moving into a transient hotel, buying a temperamental communist-era car, meeting up with a long-lost classmate, random encounters with other women and repeatedly trying to get back together with Ana.


Rodrigo Moreno is part of a young generation of Argentinian filmmakers seeking to develop innovative and original forms of storytelling. Hence, his first mid-length feature, part of the omnibus feature MALA EPOCA (1998), was awarded for its original conception for the young filmmaker's vision of contemporary life. After his feature EL DESCANSO, co-directed with Ulises Rosell and Andrés Tambornino in 2002, Rodrigo Moreno was awarded the Alfred Bauer's Prize for the most innovative film at Berlinale 2006 for EL CUSTODIO. The feature, gaining him critical acclaim in Berlin, went on to win more than 30 international awards. Rodrigo Moreno, former student of the Universidad del Cine, was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where he works and lives.
