This near-silent black and white film from Argentina tells the story of a city that has lost its voice, stolen by Mr. TV, and the attempts of a small family to win the voice back. Similar in design to early German expressionist films.

Perfectly balanced , well directed , great cast. A must see. A true example of what can be found beyond main stream. A psych-suspense , almost thriller like script , that leaves the viewer the choice of building his own barrier , at the point where each of us believes fiction ends and reality starts and vice versa. It takes place in Buenos Aires , but it's NOT local at all ,but rather Universal , it could be happening anywhere in the world . Extremely believable , tension increases as the story develops .It's refreshing to learn that this movie was made with only 3% of the average cost of a Hollywood production . Another indisputable proof that Talent is enough , regardless of the amounts of cash available to expend. Watch it , it worths every inch of celluloid , and every minute of your time
