Comments about "El Arreglo"
9 August 1999 | by (Lujan, Argentina) – See all my reviews

This movie is one of the best movies that has been filmed in Argentina. The lines and the actors are excellent. I have to recommend this movie because is just great. Federico Luppi is the main actor and plays a very important role in the film, and I think it's one of his best roles.
