Six friends spend New Year's at a house by the river. The host, Nicolas brings his ex-girlfriend Pilar with whom he just had a one-night stand. But, he hits on every other girl including the brooding Cata and the voluptuous Belén. When Nicolas unexpectedly falls into bed and then into love with the high-strung Manuela who also happens to be his best friend's girlfriend, the last laugh is on him.
In some ways well made, but the story itself was curiously uninvolving.
Martín Piroyansky is a young Argentine filmmaker who not only directed Volley, but wrote and starred in this film. That is quite an achievement. However, despite showing some real talent when it came to his directing and acting, the story itself left me very cold.
Volley is the story about six 20-somethings who go on a joint vacation to the summer home owned by Nicholas' family. Their plans are to hang out and get stoned. Nicholas, on the other hand, seems more interested in sex and through the course of the film, he has sex, or more correctly, nearly has sex with three of the four women. However, although he openly declares that men are just cavemen who NEED sex, he finds his values (or lack of values) challenged by the end of their trip.
As I said above, Piroyansky did a fine job when it came to directing this story. He also showed a nice flair for acting. But the story itself left me very, very cold for a variety of reasons. Most of the characters seem underdeveloped and you know almost nothing about them by the end of the film. While I liked where Piroyansky's character went through the course of the film, it was difficult to really like him or care about the other characters. Additionally, the film seemed very, very talky....and most of what they talked about was sex. Believe it or not, I found this all rather boring. Not a bad film at all, but you can easily find better.
