Top Ten from Argentina
11 November 2003 | by (Buenos Aires, Argentina) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie yesterday after coming from the university.

The movie is a direct call to the military government of that time. And could pass the censorship of "Tato" "Why did you kill him". Someone was questioned. "It was a River Plate fan". One of the most incredible line listened. Direct hit to the government. Millions of people were killed or were executed in those ages ('76-'83). Incredible performance: Julio de Grazia. He found a lot of money. And a great thriller started. Realism, a film noir. All was taken care by Adolfo Aristarain. Perfect.
