Waiting for the Messiah


Time Out says

Following a Tokyo financial crash, Buenos Aires bank clerk Santamaria (Piñeyro) loses his job, sees his marriage fall apart and winds up on the street. Scraping a living by returning stolen wallets, he meets Ariel (Hendler), a confused Jewish boy who wants to change the future mapped out future in his father's restaurant business and with the 'girl next door'. Through these carefully constructed, unconventional characters, ideas of Jewishness, sexual difference, loneliness and social exclusion are explored with humour and sensitivity.
