Patagonian cure against cynicism
28 May 2003 | by (Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

An idealist movie as there ever was, "caballos salvajes" (Wild horses), truly captures an specific feeling in argentinian cinema.

Similar in spirit to the movies of Adolfo Aristaráin, it is the story about an old suicidal anarchist (Hector Alterio) who recovers his soul, and yes, it is a very soulful movie. Not a movie made to win festivals or to make well deserved cash, Caballos Salvajes is political at times, but also poignant and inspiring, nonetheless it's a road movie, with trepidant action and a heart of gold.

A life affirming flick for anyone who feels a little lost (although not a septuagenarian myself, I can relate), but also a great portrait of Argentina in the 1990s. A must see, anyway.
