The Laws of Thermodynamics
From the Daily Dot
Director Mateo Gil (Blackthorn, Realive) makes a brainy, but an ultimately unfulfilling Spanish-language romantic comedy in Netflix's The Laws of Thermodynamics, which plots along notions that the permanent universal laws dictate our emotional behaviors as much as our physical lives. Burgeoning but anxious astrophysicist Manel (Vito Sanz) exists as a doctorate-seeking assistant. His good friend Pablo (Chino Darin, the son of Roberto, Argentinean star) and girlfriend Raquel (Irene Escolar) also orbit his life. Pivoting on Newton's force of attraction, Manel has a chance run-in with Elena (Berta Vazquez), a model and wannabe actress, and soon dump-trucks Raquel and her feelings to the side. Though playful and occasionally bright, the high concept's never taken into the deep end of the imagination pool to leave a mark.
