Synopsis

Segundo is 14 years old and works with his father, Noah, locally renowned thanks to his talents for building retablos, a sort of decorative cribs. He feels a little bored and dreams of seeing other things. But when confronted with an aspect of his father he did not suspect, everything is about to change in his life. If Retablo is a film about initiation (of virility, masculinity), it is not as one might expect. On the contrary, the film plays on certain deep-rooted stereotypes, such as the father-son relationship full of virile feelings, and shows that there are alternative and unexpected ways of being a man, a real one… Shot in the middle of the sumptuous landscapes of the Andes, this film is a wonder of tenderness and sensitivity.
