On a chaotic Friday in Buenos Aires, Alma and Roberto meet in the pouring rain. In the middle of the traffic chaos, the door of Alma's car opens. Roberto gets in, injured and wet to the bones. "Please close the door! As soon as this is all over, I'm getting out." Without knowing why, Alma does what Roberto asks her to do. They have no idea that this sudden and unexpected encounter will change their lives. Alma made aimless rounds in the city in her car before, and Roberto wanted to find himself. None of them know what to do or how to progress in their lives. Alma and Roberto - excellently played by Valeria Bertuccelli and Ernesto Alterio - are people like all of us, vulnerable and therefore grow close to our hearts.

«Es mag Zufall sein, aber wieder ist es eine Regisseurin, die das Roadmovie gewitzt neu erfindet und so ihrer leisen Geschichte einen besonderen cinéastischen Reiz verleiht.»
Christine Stark, Mediendienst

«Simple, efficace, le cinéma de Paula Hernández est tout simplement séduisant. Lluvia est un film magnifique.»
20 Minutes

« Un déluge émotionnel soigneusement cadré par la réalisatrice Paula Hernández. »
Tribune de Genève

«Lost in Buenos Aires: Eine wunderbare Geschichte über zwei Fremde die Freunde werden, weil sie beide verloren sind…»

« Rarement la pluie aura été aussi photogénique que dans Lluvia de Paula Hernández. »
« Un suspense qui vous prend vraiment, tant la réalisatrice s’y entend à installer un climat et à faire vibrer ses acteurs. »
Le Temps (Norbert Creutz)

« La retenue, l’économie de moyens, la finesse de la suggestion font de Lluvia une œuvre délicate et courageuse. Paula Hernández est un auteur à suivre. »
