Classic Argentine humor
3 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If one wants to understand Argentine humor, this movie is a must see. Hilarious, laconic, beautifully ironic. Wonderful statement of the Argentine character. "Tengo fiaca" is the classic statement of lack of motivation. Taken to the extreme, the protagonist finds himself unable to make himself go to work, with a case of spring fever, and skips work, to work out his lack of motivation, and after having run its course, and running out of alternatives, returns to work, only to find that he still cannot force himself to sell out to the industrial machination of modern society. It is, along with Julio Cortazar's essay "Sobre la solucíon de controversias" in his work La vuelta al dia en ochenta mundos, the quintessential statement of Argentine humor.
