End of the Century trailer: A causal encounter reveals a deeper connection long-forgotten

Argentinian filmmaker Lucio Castro’s debut film, End of the Century, has won wide acclaim since arriving on the festival circuit 10 months ago and also popped up at LFF, and in our review Mari Jones said it was "an intriguing, romantic tale filled with engaging moments of realism." Castro's dreamy narrative weaves together forgotten memories and emotions, ruminating on the sometimes fleeting nature of love. Many believe this to be one of the best gay films released in the past 12 months (in other territories) and it is only a couple weeks away from arriving in the UK. Take a first look at the End of the Century trailer above.

When Ocho, a 30-something Argentine poet on vacation in Barcelona, spots Javi, a Spaniard from Berlin, from the balcony of his Airbnb, the attraction is subtle but persistent. After a missed connection on the beach, a third chance encounter escalates to a seemingly random hookup. But are these two merely beautiful strangers in a foreign city or are they part of each other’s histories—and maybe even their destinies?

Written and directed by Lucio Castro, the film stars Juan Barberini and Ramón Pujol in the lead roles, with Mia Maestro in support.

End of the Century arrives in select UK cinemas on February 21.
