    • Synopsis
    • When Guzmán decided to make a film about love, he started at a dance party for old folks at a bar in Montevideo. These people with life experience will know what love is, he thought. He collected 11 stories from them, but realized that there‘s plenty they don‘t understand, either. Filmed in the familiar surroundings of their living room, and often enjoying a traditional cup of mate, the old-timers tell their love stories. Some were betrayed in one relationship or the other, and some couples were perfectly matched. The lovers who‘ve been together for a long time know what to expect from each other, and they‘ve grown closer along the way. Sometimes love is more friendship than passion. If the stories have one lesson in common, it‘s that love can be complicated, but that doesn‘t mean it‘s not love.
