Three 20-year-olds from a provincial Argentine town buy a 1973 Chevy, which turns out to be a lemon, and spend the summer dating girls in “’73 Model,” a sweet and innocent debut feature by Rodrigo Moscoso. Quick snippets of scenes and snatches of music recreate a jumpy, insecure late-teen world where the kids for once explore their feelings, rather than their bodily needs, for the opposite sex. Holding out more hope for the future than the static Uruguayan “25 Watts,” which it superficially resembles, pic is basically a local teen attraction with limited offshore reach.

Manuel (Emmanuel Moscoso), a lanky young artist, gets a job painting a Coca-Cola sign for his father’s friend. He flubs picking up a girl (Carolina Terpolili) in a disco because the Chevy won’t start. Ramiro (Fernando Belton), who sells lottery tickets, notices a tough young policewoman browsing in the gun shop across the street. Curly-haired Luis (Sebastian Colina) takes remedial math courses from a pretty teacher he has a crush on but ends up dating her spunky niece. In the end, each boy comes to a wise conclusion regarding his girl.
