Stop it!

Keep still.

Looks good, right?

No.

A**hole!

Idiot!

Are you ready?

This is no place for carnival, boys.

Let's go. We're going to be late.

You won't get me!

- Hey Mati!

- Hi!

Do you want to come with

us to the sambodrome?

No, I'm going to the yacht club

with Jero.

The sambodrome is much more fun.

No, I'm staying with him.

Let's go.

Well, let's look for someone else.

- Hun, you know it's a costume party, right?

- Yes.

I've got a surprise for you.

Mariela helped me to find a make up artist.

We're going to be turned into zombies.

You think?

I thought you would like the idea.

I like it.

But you don't like zombie movies.

But you like it. And I

wanted to make you happy.

It means a lot for me that

you are here with me.

There.

So you already have the costumes?

Yes we have everything ready.

Jero!

Matias, it's been a while...

So, you already know each other?

Yes, from when we were kids.

Great!

- Would you like a cold drink?

- Yes, please. It's such a hot day.

- How are you doing, Matu?

- Good. It's been a while, right?

You look the same.

I don't know

I would have recognized you anywhere.

And... How are you doing?

Here I am.

I need you to stay still, ok?

So, you're a professional make up artist?

No, I work in FX.

I only do this every once in a while.

I need you to keep your eyes closed

or you'll get make up in your eye.

Hun, can you come a minute please?

- Can I go?

- Yes, sure. I'll prepare the color.

Don't come in. I'm ashamed.

I'm sure you're ok.

Let me take a look, come on.

- Alright.

I look stupid, right?

Not at all.

You're the sexiest zombie in the world.

My cousin graduated and she's throwing

a party tonight at the yacht club.

- Awesome!

- Yeah.

You should come, it's going to be great.

Mariela even invited a

DJ from Buenos Aires.

Sorry. I already have plans for tonight.

Ready!

Let's see. Try this on.

- You think?

- Yes.

It looks good.

The perfect zombie.

Where's Mati?

Please, tell me

you're not having such a bad time.

Come on, dumb-ass, come here.

Make room for me.

You're gonna fall.

Stupid, you almost make me fall.

- You almost fell down, like this.

- You're pushing me!

- Remember last night?

- What about it?

- You hit me like this.

- You stupid, f***...

Rock!

Come on, Mati.

Hi, buddy!

And this one? Is it new?

Yes, we found it on Christmas.

It's a pain-in-the-ass-dog.

His name is Ivan.

Looks like a breed dog.

It's a true mutt.

Guys, can you give

me a hand with the boxes?

Here. Be careful, it's heavy.

Look at these.

This one sucks for sure.

This one's my favorite.

- You have to see this one.

- No.

The Return of the Living Dead

is the best zombie movie in the universe.

No.

Brains! Brains!

Stop it, a**hole!

Four bounces.

Let's see how many I get with this one.

- You didn't make it.

- No.

Let's go.

There are no alligators in here, right?

Yes, alligators and snakes.

- You're kidding me?

- No, seriously.

But with the mess we're making,

even the fish will go away.

I need to take a leak.

Wait! There are capybaras.

Let's go. Come on.

Did you see them?

Yes, there they are. Look at them.

You prick!

Take this one!

No!

- Those are my shorts!

- Doesn't matter. I can throw them anyway.

Now you don't care about the alligators.

Alligators?

Not here, they are further ahead.

Matu!

- Brains! Brains!

- Idiot! If something happened to you, I'd die.

How childish of you both,

to get soaked like this.

Get in the shower, right away!

What did I tell you about misbehaving?

I don't want you to get sick.

Come on in. You're freezing.

Stop it.

Feeling better?

You're not so cold anymore, right?

Mom!

Hurry up! Get dressed!

Dinner is ready.

- Do you want popcorn?

- Yes, fine.

- Hello, how much is it?

- Five pesos.

Hey, look! It's your friend!

Hello! How are you?

- Fine. How was the party?

- Awesome! My cousin was really happy!

Hey, you didn't pick up your jacket.

I can bring it to you, if you want to.

Don't worry.

I can stop by one of these days.

- Shall we go?

- Enjoy the carnival.

- Goodbye.

- Bye!

- Let's grab something to eat.

- No, I'm tired

- What if we go to the canteen?

- No It's going to be fully packed.

I'm really tired, hun.

Don't be like that...

It's so hard with you and your phobias...

What?

What phobias?

No, hun. I'm sick of being with this

many people. I can't stand it anymore.

Alright, we go home but next time give

me a map to understand what you want.

- Hello, I brought back your jacket.

- Hello.

Hey, I was finishing plastering

the kitchen. Come in.

- You went outside at the worst time of day.

- Yeah.

It's so hot, I can't stand it.

Well, thanks again.

Hold on, let me wash my hands.

Sure, no problem.

So, how's Libres treating you?

Fine. It's fine. Too crowded.

- May I?

- Sure!

I made all of them.

- This one is great.

- That's my favorite.

- Really?

- Yeah.

Have some time to drink "terer"?

OK, fine.

Rochi is out with some friends.

She gave me your address.

- Hi, how are you?

- Hello.

Fine.

I think you guys know each other.

Matias, this is Gustavo my cousin.

Yes, we met at a birthday party

when we were kids, right?

Maybe.

He's the best, he's giving me a hand

with all the housework.

Ready? Let's go.

See you.

Hello? Yes?

No...

I'll be back by monday.

Yes, I already sent the files.

Sure. As soon as possible.

Goodbye.

You thought he was my boyfriend, right?

No!

- Come on, you almost leave.

- No way.

He's not my type.

And I don't have a boyfriend.

Your face is all dirty.

Where have you been?

Just like when we were kids.

Here it is.

Wow, look at this picture!

Your mom used to take

pictures of us all the time.

And on this one she took our mud mustache.

No, it's not mud.

It's food. Look!

We were always eating.

You're right. It's blue cheese.

Yes, that's it.

We were so weird.

We had a thing for blue cheese.

You liked it.

Yes, but you liked it too, didn't you?

- So you stayed in Brazil, then?

- Yeah. Yes, I got a good job.

I'm sure you studied Biology.

Anything to do with the animals?

Biology yes. Animals no.

I still love blue cheese.

You don't love animals anymore?

I had forgotten about blue cheese.

And I forgot a bit about the animals too.

I work in research now.

I don't believe you forgot

about the blue cheese.

You used to love it.

It was me who used to put it in the basket.

Maril kept forgetting. So I always

got it to make sure there was enough.

I did not know.

I was that fan...

Research, huh?

Yes, in a company.

New soybean seeds.

Soybeans? Transgenic?

Just better seeds.

I prefer fieldwork but

it's an important project.

And the money should be good.

Yeah, money's good.

What about you?

I studied Filmmaking for

a while, in Corrientes.

And then I started working

in animation and special effects.

I see.

If there's no other choice,

I'll go to work to Buenos Aires.

And how is it?

I'm not rich but it's fine.

Sometimes I get scared
