Meet Camilo, Mechas, Manu, Ana and Pipa. Tattooed, pierced, and styled with wild hair and grunge clothing, they perform circus tricks at traffic lights, saving up money to go travelling. Overbearing parents, religious austerity and a distinct lack of prospects are forcing these kids out of the city, chasing freedom.
Shot in softly focused black-and-white, the film displays a clean monochromatic aesthetic that contradicts the anarchic attitude of our central characters. Though the camera often watches the events unfold with a gentle passivity, the film possesses an immediate urgency, brought alive by a restless narrative. The characters ramble through a desolate dreamland, somehow both carefree and deeply affected, until the potential dangers of their vagabond existence come to a head in the film’s final moments.
The Nobodies manages to conjure a world textured with both exasperated angst and subtle tenderness, previously seen in films like Kids (Larry Clark, 1995). Additionally peppered with an eclectic, riotous soundtrack and some breathtaking city visuals, it’s easy to see how this won the Venice Film Festival’s Critics’ Week prize.
