The great Argentine epic on film
13 November 1999 | by (Miami & Sao Paulo, BR) – See all my reviews

MARTIN FIERRO is the "Homer", "El Cid" or "Chanson de Roland" of Argentina. It's the national epic which every school child must read. A mythical account of the gauchos (Argentine cowboys) and their struggle to survive in the pampas of Argentina, MARTIN FIERRO is a showcase of national folklore and of the gaucho's push to conquer all of Argentina, against the Indians and other enemies. Their push south, west and north is somewhat comparable to the U.S. One of the main differences, as shown in MARTIN FIERRO, is the smaller role played by women and families in the Argentine conquest. The poetic rhythm of the original novel/epic poem is maintained in the narration used throughout the film. If you are not interested in Argentine history, and have not read MARTIN FIERRO, I think it's highly unlikely you'll enjoy this film.>
