10,000 km ★★★½

In this two-character film (seen at the Seattle Film Festival with the alternate title 10,000 Km), Alexandra and Sergio are a young Barcelona couple. She is an artist/photorapher, he a student. When Alex gets a grant to spend a year creating an art installation in Los Angeles, the two reluctantly decide to attempt a long distance relationship by Skype and e-mail. This is a ground-breaking film in the way it presents how high-speed computing facilitates communication. And the two actors, Natalia Tena (familiar as Osha from Game of Thrones) and bearded David Verdaguer, were quite good portraying both passion and deprivation. The film was so well written and shot that one forgets that only two characters inhabit every scene.
