Dir. Fernando Eimbcke. Mexico. 2008, 81 mins. 35mm. With Diego Cataño, Hector Herrera, Daniela Valentine. In Spanish with English subtitles. Teenage Juan crashes his family’s car into a telegraph pole on the outskirts of town, and then scours the streets searching for someone to help him fix it. His quest will bring him to Don Heber, an old paranoid mechanic whose only companion is Sica, his almost human boxer dog; to Lucía, a young mother who is convinced that her real place in life is as a lead singer in a punk band; and to “The One who Knows,” a teenage mechanic obsessed with martial arts and kung fu philosophy. The second feature from the talented Mexican director Fernando Eimbcke (Duck Season, Club Sandwich), Lake Tahoe is a dreamy, mesmerizing film about death, family, love, and sex. Preceded by Driving Lessons (Dir. Elodie Lélu, Belgium, 2012, 12 mins.)
