These two mature people risk a last chance at a meaningful relationship in their lives. Written by

Calling out to the crew of Love Actually: This IS the way to make a romance movie, yours is the way NOT to!!!
I'm absolutely stunned by Sol De Otoño! It's an adorable love story, and a great movie with flawless cinematography and excellent acting. I was surprised to see it's THIS good! I couldn't help marvel at such a great acting made merely of face gestures, and a story that's handled so well. I guess I'm not exaggerating my feelings when I say this kind of movie comes once in a decade, if that.
The DVD I have is not exactly DVD quality, and it's disappointing to see such a fabulous movie on a below-par video quality. But still, it was one of the best 105 minutes of my life! Anyone with a heart, and anyone with the least bit of a taste on movies, will certainly LOVE this flick! It's lots of fun, and a magnificent art work at the same time.
Sol De Otoño is entertaining, yet poignant and touching. It's a well-kneaded mixture of first class art and great entertainment. Definitely the best Argentine movie I've seen, and probably the best movie I've seen overall.
A perfect 10/10 from me.
