The Exchange (El intercambio)

Friendship tested, desire ignited: A daring exploration of curiosity and intimacy.
5/5

Review

Marco Berger’s latest gay-themed short short is a bold plunge into the depths of intimacy, friendship, and desire. In this surreal tale, Berger and co-writer Alex Aguilera take viewers on a journey where boundaries blur and curiosity reigns supreme.

From the breathtaking opening shot, Berger hooks us into the world of Mateo and Lucas, portrayed by Franco Mosqueiras and Gonzalo Garrido. Their chemistry is palpable, their bond unbreakable, as they navigate the complexities of friendship and their sexuality with raw honesty.

But it’s the unexpected twist, delivered with blend of humor and surrealism, that propels this film into uncharted territory. As Mateo wakes up to a startling revelation (no spoilers), we’re catapulted into a realm where curiosity knows no bounds, and inhibitions are left at the door.

Matías Lasarte’s cinematography captures every moment with exquisite precision. With its unabashed exploration of sexuality and friendship, this film is a breath of fresh air in the world of LGBTQ+ cinema. Berger doesn’t just push boundaries; he shatters them, leaving us questioning our own perceptions of intimacy and connection. Bold, beautiful, and utterly unforgettable.

Brief Synopsis

Mateo and Lucas, best friends, go out to party in a hot summer night. Mateo meets Lucia, and Lucia commits an act that will change their lives. From there, Mateo and Lucas will begin a search, both physical and personal.
