The Life of Fish (La vida de los peces)
At a house party, a handsome man wanders around catching up with friends he has not seen for some years. A travel writer now based in Berlin, Andre appears to be living an exciting international life, and yet... something has drawn him back home to Santiago. As the night goes on, we realize that a tragedy binds this group - an event that was also the impetus for Andre's departure from Chile years ago. Moreover, there is someone at the party he goes to great lengths to avoid. But she is the very person he most needs to see.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Comprova a maturidade crescente de seu ainda jovem diretor."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Most such films are packed with dialog like an overstuffed grocery bag, but The Life of Fish features conversation spoken slowly and sparsely as if every word must count."
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
"Sustained by one of the best ensembles you're likely to see anywhere this year; almost every feeling and thought is translucent."
‑ Kent Turner, Film-Forward.com
"A fine film in general, Chilé's recent Oscar submission for Best Foreign Language Film will particularly poke (pain?) those who have traveled the more unfamiliar roads..."
‑ John Esther, UR Chicago Magazine
