Featuring an award-winning performance by Guillermo Pfening, director Julia Solomonoff's Argentinian drama Nobody's Watching movingly explores who we are, who we pretend to be, and what happens when your life suddenly lacks an audience.
Thirtysomething actor Nico has abandoned a successful career as a soap opera star in Buenos Aires to make it big in New York. Now the film he came for has been put on hold, he doesn't have a visa, and he's babysitting, bartending, and shoplifting to make ends meet. When an old friend comes to stay he keeps up appearances but the strain of life as a struggling immigrant actor is beginning to show and his impulses are becoming self-destructive. He could easily return home to his former life of fame and success but that would mean a renewal of his toxic relationship with Martin, his older, domineering lover and boss.
Sensitive writing, a sharp understanding of milieu and a superb performance by Guillermo Pfening expertly capture the struggles of an Argentine actor trying to find his place in New York - Variety
