DVD output: I miss you by Rodrigo Bellott
In this new feature film, Rodrigo Bellott adapts his own play which was relatively successful when it was presented in Bolivia in 2015, freeing the voice of many young people who suffered from not being able to live their homosexuality openly and socially. The story is also based on a true story and the film is a faithful adaptation of the artistic ambition of the original play. The filmmaker thus presents different levels of narrative between the story of mourning and the meeting between a man and his stepfather, the rehearsals of the play and the meeting between a journalist and the director. The film fully assumes these different levels of reading for a complex story that cannot be reduced to a single reading. In the same way, the role of the young man who committed suicide is interpreted by nearly 30 distinct actors recalling the importance of preserving a multitude of assumptions as for the possible interpretation of a personality too soon disappeared.
The screenplay is thus expertly developed and notably offers the interpretation of two renowned international actors: the Argentinian Oscar Martínez and the Spanish Rossy De Palma. Between New York, Bolivia, Argentina and Spain, the theme of the film is broadly universal and Rodrigo Bellott has been able to give himself the means through his choices of direction.
