What I Love the Most
Filmfest 2011

WHAT I LOVE THE MOST is a heartfelt and sincere portrayal of two young women experiencing profound bereavement. Shot in Bariloche, Patagonia, the film is embedded in the natural world, providing the necessary physical space for the characters to contemplate their present and future. Maria visits her friend Pilar who has recently lost her father and lives alone in Bariloche. While Pilar is coming to terms with her loss, Maria too is mourning the loss of love she once had with her boyfriend. Escaping Buenos Aires, she finds the trip south providing the necessary change to realize that her relationship is coming to an end. And there’s a local boy, Diego, who offers Maria a wonderful distraction from her problems. As Maria and Pilar spend their days visiting markets and lakes, cooking dinners and drinking wine, they struggle to accept the changes that their new circumstances demand. Patagonia is a present character in the film, provoking strikingly different responses from the urban Maria and from Pilar, more at ease in the natural world. indiewire.com
