The price of do the right thing
30 August 2005 | by See all my reviews

One of my favorites movies from Argentina. The simply story of a person (Federico Luppi) who doesn't want to pay "black money" in order to have what should be a right: water. Just for wants to do the things under the law, Luppi will lost the respect of all the neighbors (who do accept to pay money to a person from the local government to have the connection to the public water), and his own family who doesn't understand –and won't pay- the need of do the right think. In some parts of the picture, Luppi remains to a modern and south American Gary Cooper in High Noon, but in a very often situation in the Argentina of the last 30 years.
