I didn't see any instances in this film where I would consider it an "epic" as was tagged onto the film as it also won numerous awards. The film is rather tame and boring and doesn't break any new ground, at times its often tedious. The story concerns a gaucho (an Indian living in Argentina who wears hats) and his existential journey through suffering. The camera angles are amateurish and at times, it seems like we are just watching a bunch of extras on the screen. Most of them have the worst hair pieces and beards used in cinema. The fight between the calvary troops and the "injuns" is staged and not very credible. Although for the most part this film lacks any traits which would make it seem like a highly enjoyable film, there are some existential leanings that give one a sense of time and alienation.
