Push, come on. Almost there.

Almost there.

You're doing great.
One last push, almost there.

You're doing great.
You're doing really great.

Breathe, exhale. Now push!

Is the baby okay?


...can't catch a fish twice
With the same net

The next ones won't judge anyone


And I don't care about the other ones

Those jailers of humankind

Won't catch me twice with the same net

I love you, Charly!

I want to introduce some people,

who rehearsed for only ten days
and play like this.

They're up to no good.

First off, the woman who is never there,
Fabiana Cantilo.

The man who is leading
the magazine charts, Alfredo Toth.

A guy everybody knows,

the only man who can match
a drum machine, Willy Iturri.

Gonzo, saxophone.

Our stoner dude, Daniel Melingo.

Fito! Fito!

The people have spoken.

Whatever the people want, they never get.

Today they will,
because you paid for tickets.

From this very city,
the Chicago of Argentina,

home of Wild Rita,

Fito Paez.

Fito! Fito!

Fito! Fito!

Can I have this? I'm out of clean clothes.

Guess who I am.

One, two, three and go

His Fender dripping with hatred

- You're the most beautiful girl ever.
- Come on.

Who does awful impressions.

- Excuse me?
- Awful.

You know who I look like with these?

Lucho Bordenave.

- Who is that? Another boyfriend of yours?
- What?

Asleep in the Sun. You haven't read it?

- You haven't?
- No.

Then you have to read it, Mr. Paez.

See you later.

- Stay.
- No.

- Call in sick.
- I'm not sick.

- Come on.
- I'm not sick!

- It's just a lie so you can stay with me.
- Bye.

Excuse me.

I have an appointment at two.
Is Andrés Gallo here already?

Yes, he's here.


Mr. Portunato will see you now.



What's up, man?

Come in.

- Fito, my boy.
- Hello.

- Sorry.
- No worries.

- I thought it was at two.
- It was. I got here earlier to talk.

I have something special for you guys.

It's the drink of the future.

Lemon lime soda.
I'm trying to lay off the booze.

Miguel Abuelo once told me,

"One glass of whiskey is not enough,
two is too many,

three is not enough."

It's true.

I think you have... we all have...

- We all do.
- amazing album in store.

What do you mean?

Your debut album.

You helped Juan Carlos, Silvina,
and Fandermole with their albums.

Only yours is left.

Gallo played me
some amazing songs of yours.

He said you have more
that you're working on, right?

Yes. I have enough for an album.

- What do you say?
- Yes!

You need time to think?

No! Give it here.

- You won't change my music.
- Absolutely not.



Whiskey, whiskey. Let's get a whiskey.


Dad, have you seen this one?

Sui Generis.

Can we play it?

Come on, we can listen to Jobim later.

Come on.

Son, you know you can tell me anything.
I won't say a word.

I know.


Mute the feed.

- It's not working, Tuerto.
- What is it?

- Go harder on the hi-hat.
- Okay.

I like the sound of that.
What do you think?

It brings the mood up.

- It brings it to life.
- Yes.

- It's better.
- Yes. That sounds good, Fito.

That's it, Tuerto, we'll keep that.

- Play it again, please.
- Okay.

Marito, mute the hi-hat.

So much better.

Much better, right?

It's better.

Where is Felipa?

Felipa went back to her home.


You asked her to leave.

You packed it so neatly!
Did you do it yourself?


No way. Granny helped you.

No, I packed it myself.

You packed enough underwear, right?

- Yes, like you told me.
- Three.

Plus the one you're wearing.

Don't look so sad, Fito, come on.
It'll be great.

If it's so great,
then why aren't you going?

- What do you think?
- I love it.

Do you? Don't you think it's a bit...

like folk music?

Maybe just a bit. But it's good anyway.

No, no.

It's not working.

- It's not working.
- He's exhausted, he's done so many takes.

But this is not what I want.
It's not working.

I'm sorry, César. You're doing great,
but I want a different sound.

Can I just try something?

Go ahead.

Thanks, man.

Now it'll sound like Charly.

Let him try it.

Can I have those?

Play it for me, Mario.

Didn't I call it?

Cleopatra, the Queen of the Nile

Cleopatra, the Queen of the Twist

They resent you in Rome
Mark Antony buys you gold

She's a beauty expert
But she's covered in zits

Cleopatra, the Queen of the Nile

Cleopatra, the Queen of the Twist

The sacred texts lied for you

The serpent will be your final kiss

Pardon me.

- Hey!
- Hi.

- Did you see the whole thing?
- Almost. It was great.

- I spent hours in the studio.
- Beer, please!

Before they forget I'm with the band.

- You have something new?
- It's only a bit.

Hilda! Hi, beautiful!

- Did you see it?
- It was amazing!

Can I have that beer, please? Come on!

They're so stingy with the drinks.

I saved you a seat on the bus with us.

I don't think I'm really in the mood
to go out tonight.

What? You don't want to go out?

- I don't know.
- No.

Come on, we're playing
the roof of the Bauen.

I'm super nervous about the album and...

I want to be alone for a while,
focus on that.

But you should go. You'll have fun.

We'll be done at one,
and I can meet you somewhere.

- Pippo?
- Pippo rocks.

Let's order wine and vermicelli.


Four hours and not a word.

Don't you think it's too much?

Stubborn, like his mother.

How's your back?

Old and creaky.

- And your wife?
- Same as my back.

Do you remember Mr. Suárez?


- It will come to him.
- Of course.

Come on, let's go in.

Come on.

- How was the drive?
- Fine.


You got stood up, boy?

You remind me of someone.

What do you do?

I'm a musician.

Do you have a band or something?
How does that work?

I'm in Charly's band.

- Charly?
- Yes.

Oh, wow!

Then you must be good.

So what? Do you go on tour?

We go on tour, yes.

What do you play?

The keyboard.

Oh, so you're actually good.

- Roberto, get the camera.
- Sure.

Get the camera. This guy's famous.
He is part of Charly's band.

Come on, let's get a picture.

Stand over there.

All right, smile.

Another one, just in case.

Okay, again.

- Didn't I tell you?
- You did.

Do you want to see a pregnant mare?

- What does that mean?
- She is carrying a foal.

Yes, she's going to be a mom.

Careful, okay?

I'll meet you somewhere

Even though it's so late

So much hatred to placate

So much disposable love

I hear your voice by my side

Even though we are apart

This world is so devoid of sensuality

That it cannot give me relief

You are my obsession

I want to get you

You are my destruction

Hey. Hey!

Can't stop myself from thinking


- Hi.
- This is Fito.

- Hello.
- I'm Fito.

Oh my God, an awful thing happened!

- I can't hear you.
- Look, my ring.

- What?
- I lost it!

You lost what?

Stop it.

In the lead, Paez,
the curly haired swordsman.

Come on, Fabi, get down.

- What is with you?
- Nothing, I'm fine.

- You sure?
- I am.

It's about this album.
Everything I play sounds old.

I can't find the right sound.
I'm going crazy.

Really? Are you feeling insecure, Paez?

Is that it? Why didn't you tell me?

If you'd come to Pippo,
you would've known.

You forgot, right?

I played two shows.

But why do you make plans
if you know you can't make it?

- I can.
- No, you can't, Fabi.

You're doing your own thing.

You do what you want,
and you don't give one fuck.

And you? Who do you think you are?

You think you're so considerate,
such a nice guy.

I go to all your shows, but you don't.

Your stuff is much more important
than mine, right?

- You don't care if I'm there.
- How would you know, huh?


Don't do that! You'll get yourself killed.

I have my own problems too, you know?

Can you turn down the music, please?

I want to do something different,
and the guys don't. So what can I do?

Sorry, can you turn it down?

It's not that I don't like them.
I love spending time with them.

But Los Twist is not my band!

It belongs to Pipo and Melingo.

I want something mine.

Sir, can you take Dorrego street?

You're always wrapped up in your own shit.
Your album, your stuff.

You know what? Just go straight.

See? I'm talking to you! Don't ignore me!

Hey! I want you both out.

Are you crazy?

- Out, both of you!
- All right, okay.

You're so selfish!

- Go fuck yourself!
- You are an asshole!

Paez, this club is...?
This is where Silvina... No way!

What are you doing?

Get down, Fabi!

Get down, are you crazy? Come back!

- Come on, Paez!
- No way! Get down!

Don't be a wimp, come on!

Are you up for it?


What now?

Did you know I saw your birth?

Your dad and Belia waited outside.

You looked the same.
Long and skinny, like a noodle.

You cried so much...

More like screamed, actually.
The whole hospital heard you.

But when I placed you in Margarita's arms,

you went silent.

It was like magic.

Look how many sticks you got.

What is up with you?


What is up with you?

Come on, Paez.

What are you doing? Get out now!

Get in.

Paez, get in.

Fabi, sometimes I don't...

Whenever we try to explain, lies begin.

Water holds information, Paez.
It came from meteorites.

It's an alien substance.

- Why do you run away from me?
- What do you mean?

Why won't you fuck me?

When I was young...

I ran into the wrong person
at the wrong time.

Want to try it?

No, thank you.

Is someone here?

Who are you?

Wait. This way, come on.

Fabi, are you okay? Fabiana!

Are you okay?


I'm worried, honey. Seriously.

Stop, Mom. It could've happened to anyone.

Running through a glass door? At 4 a.m.?

Your daughter is fine. Don't worry.

Don't worry?

- Silvina...
- All I do is worry.

It was an accident.


Give her this once a day.

How long will she keep this for?

Come back in five days. We'll change it.

Okay, thank you so much.

No worries, take care.

Knock that off.

I can't go back to the studio
until I solve this.

If you want to focus on your own things,

let me focus on mine, okay?

Leave me alone.

You're right.

You're right. I'm sorry.

You're right.

- Give me that!
- Stop it!

Where is it?

Give me that!

- Leave me alone!
- Open up!

Open the door! Give me that!

Where is it? Hand it over!
This is bad for you!

- Give it back.
- You want this? Here you go!

- Give it back!
- You want it? Here!


I think I finally got it.

Can you try something
more like bossa nova,

more relaxed?

More like this...

Can you give that a go?
