"At moments in Jesus, the second feature by Chilean director Fernando Guzzoni, you’re close to thinking you’ve seen it all before – not least in the work of Larry Clark – but a delve into the vacant world of a teenage boy and his pals later takes a turn towards something different, a study of a fraught father-son relationship with attendant painful issues of moral responsibility."

synopsis

Santiago, Chile. Jesús, 18, lives alone with his father Héctor in a flat where the TV covers up their inability to communicate. The rest of the time, he dances in a K-pop band, hangs out with friends and does drugs, watches trashy clips and has sex in public places, looking for a thrill. One night, he finds it with his friends, being involved in an irreversible misadventure. If this event will make Jesús and Héctor closer than ever, it will also tear them apart forever.
