TEIXEIRA, Fabiana Cristina. Medianeras: the traumatic element in connections and heartbreaks. Reverso [online]. 2014, vol.36, n.68, pp. 39-45. ISSN 0102-7395.

This paper aims to reflect on love relationships in the contemporary world, whose clinical demands pass by the dissatisfaction from the lack of emotional bonds, the constant endings, the relationships marked by pleasure, whose disruption produces contradictory effects, resulting in clashes and ruptures. It discusses how virtual connections subliminally deceive by having numerous possibilities of choices, although, in practice, the subjects remain missing beings around their own helplessness. From the movie “Medianeras” (“Medianeras: Buenos Aires na era do amor virtual”), comments were made about the helplessness, the symptoms and symptomatic partnerships, which, in face of the disruptions, hinder possible sublimatory exits, metaphorically, complicating the ventilation openings in the medianeras. It also discusses the articulation of Real, Symbolic and Imaginary registers from the metaphors of the buildings of Buenos Aires treated in the storyline.

Keywords : Relationships; Helplessness; Virtual connections; Medianeras.
