A family weekend is what this road-movie proposes. What could be an intimate moment of sharing between four people is, however, stained by the acknowledgment that this is the last time they will be together. There are two worlds inside the car ‚ the back seat that accompanies with little interferences the heads in tension of the parents, and the front seat, which divided in half tries to communicate to the back only its positive side. The territory is mined and must be handled with caution. Wanna Sleep Tired, phrase sung in the film, confirms the end of the relationship like a farewell ballad. Although young, Dominga Sotomayor holds the film with mastery, revealing every detail with sweetness and emotion, creating imagens with shadows and taking advantage of lights and landscape, making us penetrate a familiar universe in which we never feel like intruders or voyeurs.
