To the palindrome

  • Argentina

Audio Tracks 

A happy journey through four countries, with dozens of men and women for whom the beauty of words lies in symmetry.
And there are more palindromes in this trip by director and –of course– palindromist Tomás Lipgot. This adorable film introduces us to a brotherhood of women and men who are enormously passionate about finding the best reversible phrase. And it does so with irresistible grace, with some contempt towards anagramists, with a festive animated segment and a song that will haunt you for days.
