El amor me queda grande (2014)
19min · Short, Comedy, Drama · 16 March 2014
Samuel is ten years old and is madly in love with Lucia. Lucia is twelve years old and has a master plan to get rid of the only obstacle in her life, after her father's mysterious death in a car crash, preventing her from becoming what she desires: a writer, film critic and rich. Lucia will use all her seductive charms, emulating the femme fatales of the detective movies and novels that she compulsively watches and reads, to bring Samuel, in the name of their love, to commit a crime. Both kids get together in a park bench to execute a manipulation dance that will reach a new meaning, funny and disturbing, with the adults as their innocent witnesses. As in classic film noir stories, but filled with comedy, fatality, manipulation, jealousy, passion, and the right amount of dark surrealism are the main ingredients of a children's story about the power of imagination and the price that sometimes you pay for just loving.
