Biography

Buenos Aires-born filmmaker Alejandro Agresti began making short films as a teen in the 1970s, and started writing and directing feature-length movies in the mid-1980s after he moved to the Netherlands. His 1987 drama, "Love Is a Fat Woman," chronicling the plight of an upstart journalist, and 1988's politically charged "Secret Wedding" both screened at international festivals and brought Agresti's work to a wider audience. The director's 1993 film "The Act in Question" played at the Cannes Film Festival. Three years later came "Buenos Aires Vice Versa," a harrowing exploration of civil unrest in the director's home city. The next year, Agresti's dark family drama "La Cruz" was shown at Cannes. In 2000, Agresti moved on to considerably lighter fare with "A Night With Sabrina Love," a road movie about a teen boy who wins a date with his favorite porn star. With his next film, the 2002 feature "Valentin," the director continued to explore his fixation with Buenos Aires. A childhood saga inspired by events from Agresti's own childhood, "Valentin" was followed by "A Less Bad World," a family drama set against a chaotic political backdrop. In 2006, Agresti stepped away from his usual fare and came to Hollywood to direct the romantic fantasy "The Lake House," starring Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock.
