Showroom

After losing his job, Diego (Diego Peretti) is reduced to working for his uncle, selling apartments in a new development, while he and his family are forced to move from central Buenos Aires to the grim, outer suburb of El Tigre. Impelled by the outrage of his wife and teenage daughter at the change in their circumstances, he finds himself on a treadmill of endless commuting and long hours. As time passes, he gradually succumbs to an obsession with selling, just as his wife and daughter are growing away from him, transformed by their new environment. A darkly absurd tragi-comedy about the incongruities of the late-capitalist world, and its impact on the very foundations of identity and personal relationships. Recommended.
