From the director of our 2015 Mexican favourite En el último trago (One for the Road), an amusing drama that epitomises the art of engaging minimalism. After 39 years as caretaker at the Salvaleon warehouse, Mr Lino is preparing for retirement, and he spends the last five days at work training Nin, his young replacement. Despite Mr Lino’s exacting instructions and bureaucratic obsessions, Nin realises that hardly anything ever actually happens in the quiet building. As time goes by, to the precise rhythm set by meaningless tasks and uncomfortable silences, the mismatched pair overcome their generational conflict and develop a unique bond over the weight of one great lie.
