With his gentle drama Lo Mas Bonito Y Mis Mejores Anos, writer-director Martin Boulocq sings a mournful, bittersweet ode to the emptiness and meaninglessness of young Bolivian lives. Juan-Pablo Milan plays the teenage Berto, a Cochachamba native. Longing for a departure from Bolivia, but lacking the funds to buy the ticket to Madrid that he desires, Berto attempts to sell his most valuable asset: a 1965 Volkswagen bequeathed to him by his late grandfather. He devises a number of schemes to pawn the vehicle off, none of which seem to work. Meanwhile, his best friend Victor (Roberto Guilhon), who works at a nearby video store, futilely does everything in his power to persuade customers to rent art films by Aki Kaurismaki and Wong Kar-wai, and privately obsesses over women and sex. The two young men spend a great deal of time palling around the Bolivian countryside together, until Victor's ex-girlfriend, Camila (Alejandra Lanza) turns up and skews the balance between the two friends, particularly when she starts to develop feelings for Berto.
