After many years away, 25-year-old Ana returns from Buenos Aires to the town where she was born. She is looking for her past but when she arrives it turns out there's not much left. She walks the streets and along the riverbank on a hot summer's day; places she used to know very well. She feels at home here, but also a stranger. She sees a photo her ex-boyfriend Mariano took in the local newspaper. She asks all her old acquaintances about him. Apart from that, she has nothing much to say to these people.
Celina Murga's multi-award-winning debut film Ana and the Others is an intimate portrait of a woman looking for her memories, for people and places from her youth. Ana's Rohmerian search brings up both questions and answers from the past, and these cause her to think about her future. The film rests on the capable shoulders of Camila Toker in the role of Ana.
