Synopsis by Mark Deming
Ever wished you could put your life on pause and rewind? Andres (Daniel Guzman), a pot-addled bohemian artist, is having the sort of evening where that would be helpful. He's throwing a dinner party and has invited Monica (Paz Gomez), a woman with whom he's infatuated. Monica, however, brings along a date, a tennis pro named Manu (Enrique Simon), while another of Andres's friends, Belen (Maria Adanez) shows up with her obnoxious boyfriend Pablo (Tristan Ulloa). The party doesn't go terribly well -- food gets burned, things get broken, Pablo makes a scene -- and later in the evening, Andres nearly finds himself regretting that he videotaped the entire evening. However, when he rewinds the tape, much to his surprise he finds he can rewind real life as well, giving him a chance to salvage the party after all. Rewind was the debut feature for Spanish independent filmmaker Nicolas Munoz.
