    • Synopsis
    • Inspired by Atom Egoyan’s seminal film CALENDAR, SOMEWHERE BEAUTIFUL explores the space between the twilight of one connec'on and the dawn of another.
      A love triangle to its locations, the film explores themes of beauty, and hope as both Albert and Elena take their clumsy first steps towards the responsible dissolve of their formerly roman'c unions. Featuring Argentinean stars Maria Alche (The Holy Girl) and Pablo Cedron (The Aura, Aballay) and French film legend Dominique Pinon (Amelie, Delicatessen) this sparkling example of world cinema is a tale of quiet resilience that also serves as a gentle reminder for lovers to heed. Whether it’s the ballets slow-motion photography of a rodeo in the hills of Patagonia or a sun-streaked trip down Sunset Boulevard, the film is truly a personal and poignant artistic journey.

      A debut film that offers a poe'c glimpse of two wholly different worlds bridged by a strong thematic core. SOMEWHERE BEAUTIFUL stands both as an epic and grand valentine to the beauty of Patagonia and an intimate, character-driven piece set in the heart of Los Angeles.

      “I have watched Albert’s remarkable development as a great visual storyteller for quite some . He has a natural ability to express nuance and energy with images that are always compelling and extremely vivid, not to menBon touching and funny! Albert is destined to make great films. His illustrious background as one of the finest commercial directors in the world - combined with his genuine sense of humanity - have already made him an important director to watch.”
