San Diego Latino Film Festival presents Family Life!
In this Chilean dramedy and Official Sundance Selection, a distant relative house sits for a couple while they vacation in France. During his stay, he makes the house his own and falls for a local woman. The two develop a domestic routine that is threatened by the impending return of his family.
When a married couple decides to move to France with their young daughter for a few months, they ask a distant cousin, Martín, to house sit and take care of their cat. At 40 years old, Martín has no kids, no wife, and no job. Left to his own devices, Martín spends his days indoors chain-smoking, looking through their belongings, trying on their clothes, and moving the furniture around how he likes. He falls for Pachi, an attractive single mother. He brings her to the house and wins her over by posing as a divorcée who isn’t allowed to see his daughter because of his vindictive ex-wife. Before long, Pachi is bringing her young son over to the house, turning their casual fling into domestic bliss. As the imminent return of the real family gets closer and closer, Martín’s pseudo-family begins to unravel.
