Por Mónica Delgado

Presentado en competencia internacional del Festival de Rotterdam, en el cual recibió una mención especial del jurado, Looking for Venera es un clásico coming of age, con todos los componentes necesarios para que este género funcione: un hogar represivo, el padre castrador, la madre sumisa, un entorno social hostil, el despertar sexual, una amistad oscilante y un personaje en apariencia poco expresivo y que luego va encontrando su lugar en el mundo.
