Mariela Maggioli in The Wait

The Wait

2002 NR

Silvia (Veronica Perrotta) spends her young life caring for her bedridden mother, who's never recovered from the death of her husband. Modesto (Walter Reyno), their friend and neighbor, also lives his days in solitude, paralyzed by fear and indecision. The lives of these three loners consistently intertwine yet remain achingly separate and unfulfilled in filmmaker Aldo Garay's touching examination of isolation, yearning and despair.
