“Solo”: Written and Directed by Marcelo Briem Stamm; Starring Patricio Ramos, Mario Veron, and Carlos Echevarria
A sexy, romantic and uncomfortably chilling tale of love and deception from first time director Marcelo Briem Stamm. Handsome middle class Manuel (Patrico Ramos), hurt by his previous relationship and bored being alone, meets Julio (Mario Veron), a rugged, lonely, unemployed young man in a chat room. The two eventually meet up in person and the sexual spark is quickly ignited. And while sex is satisfying and frequent, it is their collective problems with intimacy, trust and the fear of being hurt that make them hesitant to commit fully.
As their relationship develops, both reveal secrets from their past but these revelations might be real, imagined or outright lies. All is revealed in this romantic, passionate drama/thriller that offers a shocking, strangely satisfying conclusion.
A great film; search for it. Just watching Mario Veron in this film is worth the effort of the search.
