Synopsis by Perry Seibert
In Nicolas Echevarria's romantic comedy Vivir Mata (Living Kills), radio personality Silvia (Susana Zabaleta) meets starving artist Diego (Daniel Gimenez Cacho). She believes he is a famous author and, because she is so attractive, he continues the deception. They share a night of passion, but have a falling out in the morning when the truth is revealed. Both are eventually haunted by their actions as they wonder if there was a real spark of romance between them. A friend of Silvia's asks the right questions to get her to work toward reconciliation with Diego, while Diego also comes around to a new way of thinking. The film was screened at the Palm Springs Film Festival.
