Description: A young man named Ringo (Adrian Suarez) moves from the city to the country, rooming with his cousin Nancy (Nancy Torres) and taking a job as a Pin Boy at the local bowling alley. Subjected to a physical and a rather extensive training session, Ringo is warned that the job is physically demanding and hazardous (the oblivious bowlers can only glimpse the hands and feet of the pin boys working rapidly to restore the pins) and he has no health insurance. But Ringo is happy to take the job, and seems content doing the rigorous physical work and listening to the ruminations of his older, more experienced co-workers, particularly the well-traveled former hippie who calls himself Nippur. Ringo comes home from work as Nancy goes out to her job, and they share breakfast before she leaves, establishing a rapport that soon develops into friendship. Pin Boy was written and directed by Ana Poliak. In 2004, it was the first Argentinean film to win the Grand Prize at the Buenos Aires International Festival of Independent Cinema. It was also shown by the Film Society of Lincoln Center as part of their 2004 Latinbeat series.~ Josh Ralske, All Movie Guide
