Event Description:

Ever lost a cat, tried to find it, and lied about having an estranged family to impress a girl in the process? Yeah, neither have we.

Bruno (Cristian Carvajal) and his family leave their Santiago home for a three-month visit to France. Bruno’s cousin Martín (Jorge Becker) is left in charge of the house and cat. The cat goes missing, which leads Martín to meet Pachi (Gabriela Arancibia). A romance begins, albeit one based on false pretenses: Martín claims the house is his, and that he’s a father and divorcé. Martín invents a whole new life—but when happens when real life comes back from holiday?

“A sharply observed and poignant parable.” – Jonathan Holland, The Hollywood Reporter | full review

“A tragicomic Chilean drama, this droll study...unfolds in a distinct triptych structure.” – Wendy Ide, Screen Daily
| full review

“Strange, caustic and most importantly funny, with a standout lead performance by Jorge Becker.” – Bradley Warren, The Playlist | full review

“Vida de familia
es una película que logra aunar ligereza y reflexión, sabiduría narrativa y placer del relato en un universo dramático acotado en una triangulación psicológica casi geométrica de proyecciones e identificaciones.” - Iván Pinto, El Agente Cine | full review
