SUMMARY

Too Late To Die Young, is set during the collapse of the Pinochet dictatorship in 1990 and the transition towards democracy focusing on three young characters whose families have embraced a commune and boheme lifestyle in the mountains far from the city: 16 year old Sofia who is bored of the rural life she has to live because of her father and is longing to go back to the city, Lucas who feels more than friendship towards Sofia and Clara who is obsessed with her dog. With fine details and flawless acting performances, Too Late to Die Young is more than just a recollection, but proof that Sotomayor is one of the most exciting voices of today’s cinema.
