The movie: La vida útil (2010)
La vida útil is a melancholic portrait of a cinephile that no longer fits the modern world. Jorge is a jack-of-all-trades in the Uruguayan cinematheque, from speaking Spanish to the subtitles of silent films to repairing chairs. Meanwhile, he tries to lure a woman to a performance so he can meet her.
However, the cinematheque has become an outdated institution. There are too few people and the projectors and equipment have had their best time. If the rent arrears can no longer be paid and the sponsors close the money tap, the end is in sight. From that moment on we follow Jorge who aimlessly wanders through the streets in search of a new meaning for his existence.
This dry-comic film has a nostalgic look because of the black-and-white images and the humor reminds of Woody Allen and his otherworldly characters. Jorge is just like the romantic film lover in Herbert Ross. “Play it again Sam is removed from the outside world, but looking for human contact
