Simple and powerful love story.
29 October 1999 | by (Buenos Aires, Argentina) – See all my reviews

Favio produces a master class about how to tell a story with very few resources, in an almost minimalist style, been at the same time powerful and touching. The movie has a very common plot, but Favio gives it a twist by locating it into a local context very well reproduced: an Argentine small country town.
