Up close and detailed, this intriguing début shows the boundaries of loneliness. Housekeeper Beto can't imagine any other life after many years in the filler in Mexico City, yet he has to leave. Winner of the Golden Leopard at Locarno 2008.

Old Beto lives in one small room in the large house where he has worked for 30 years. The owner moved out 10 years ago with the rest of her staff and Beto has looked after the building awaiting sale. He takes care of the garden, cleans the windows, polishes the kitchen as if life could start up again at any moment. The old lady comes to visit him occasionally and, while not a word too many is spoken during those visits, it's clear that they respect each other. Beto spends his free evenings in front of the television or with his only friend, the lady companion Lupe. Beto appreciates his loneliness and the noisy outside world makes him nervous. Suddenly the house is sold. Beto has to decide how he can maintain his isolated existence.
