Amorosa Soledad
Lovely Loneliness

Martin Carranza, Victoria Galardi

Argentina, Romantic Comedy, 2008
85 min, 35mm, Color
Spanish with English subtitles

When Soledad’s boyfriend leaves her, she makes a resolution to stay single for the next three years to avoid another heartbreak, but as soon as she makes that decision, all her actions seem to contradict her resolve. She meets a man and just when everything seems to be going well, she receives a call from her ex saying he wants to get back together. Her ex’s call forces her into making an important decision. Rounding off the engrossing and fascinating world of Soledad is her propensity for hypochondriasis, her image-conscious mother, her estranged father and her confidant who is overwhelmed with Soledad’s problems.
