qué hicimos mal

While Liv Strömquist draws and Vivian Gornick becomes the leader of a growing army of romantic love sceptics, Liliana Torres plays herself in this film in which she reviews her own love life. She hits the road, stopping off in places like Mexico and Italy, with the premise of recording interviews with her ex-boyfriends for a film. Juicy encounters in which she reviews with them what went wrong in the relationship, in a courageous journey of self-knowledge not exempt from funny moments. The chronicle of a generation with a confused emotional upbringing, the origin of an eternal and irresolvable dissatisfaction.
