Asphyxiated, with Leo Sbaraglia and Julieta Díaz: a couple on the verge of extinction


They make up a married couple of successful professionals, whose intimacy was destroyed by the routine of living together.

They say that crises can be a show of resistance in marriages.

In the case of Nacho (

Leonardo Sbaraglia

) and Lucía (

Julieta Díaz

), the passage of time raises doubts, especially related to the continuity of sexual desire and physical attraction.

They feel that they are going through a situation that unbalances the marital relationship, since long-standing resentments flourish daily and they begin to hide things so as not to increase the irritability even more.

After 24 years of marriage and with a teenage daughter, Camila (Sofía Zaga Masri), the tedium and routine of living together affected the union.

Over the years, the passion crumbled, but it did not give way to the usual deep love and companionship that characterizes those who are about to celebrate their silver wedding anniversary.

Both are successful and competitive professionals.

He is an audiovisual producer and it keeps him awake to carry out an ambitious project with Natalia Oreiro (Oreiro herself, splendid, in a special participation), with whom he maintains constant contact.

Meanwhile, she, as a gastronomic entrepreneur, runs a restaurant called Delirio and, unknown to her husband, she takes Italian classes online.

The characters of Julieta Díaz and Leonardo Sbaraglia have been married for 24 years.

Something that indicates his need to perfect himself and, perhaps, generate another personal horizon.

Faced with a new marital anniversary, they decide to embark on a boat trip and try to rebuild the bond, without realizing that when there are difficulties of understanding between the cohabitants, problems accompany their suitcases.

This impetuous and fiery couple, far from helping them recover their lost fire, will be the catalysts for the disaster.

alone and adrift

Heading for the ship, each to their own.

We cannot anticipate much more so that the surprise of the story written by Alex Kahanoff, Andrea Marra, Sebastián Rotstein and Silvina Ganger remains.

We will only say that once on the high seas, the idyllic landscapes will be erased by an approaching storm and that is a metaphor for what will happen to the protagonists.

Alone and adrift, will they resist the fate that awaits them?

The film, very well directed by Luciano Podcaminsky, has an unusual manufacture for the average of current national cinema films.

To the point that it seems like a European production, with careful photography by Nicolás Trovato, very good performances and a sustained rhythm in the edition by Patricio Pena.

Marco Antonio Caponi and Zoe Hochbaum are the couple friends of Nacho (Sbaraglia), who does not stop working.

It is even very remarkable that the characters belong to a social class with high purchasing power since, in general, native cinema does not usually reflect this almost inaccessible world assiduously.

In any case, it is possible to blame him for some weakness in the development of the plot, arising from a script that becomes somewhat predictable and does not finish investigating the crisis that is going through Nacho and Lucía.

Sbaraglia, Díaz and Marco Antonio Caponi, in the best moment of their careers, are committed and exact in their roles.

They provide flesh and professionalism to generate empathy with the viewer.

Next to such a tandem, the freshness of the rising Zoe Hochbaum is a true revelation, who is even encouraged to sing, very well,
