El cielito/LittleSky (Argentina/France 2004) Félix is a juvenile drifter making his way through the interior of Argentina when a young rancher offers him work. As the owner of a farmstead that saw better days when his father was still alive, Roberto now relies on his wife to provide with her incessant work the bare minimum for the survival of the couple and Their baby. Unable to resolve the tension, distrust and resentment leading to violence in the marriage, Félix responds to the baby’s need for protection. The bond developing between the young Félix and Chango, the baby boy he is caring for, carries the narrative forward with some of the most endearing moments ever depicted in film about the multifaceted potential of masculinity and parenting.
