Aballay was a bad tempered gaucho. After killing a man, the terrified look of the victim's son raised his consciousness about his savagery. Years go by, that kid's look doesn't leave him. Aballay knows that the kid will look for him.
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.

Strange futuristic movie resembling Fritz Lang's Metropolis
I've seen this movie in a festival in Porto, Portugal called Fantasporto. I was amazed because it didn't win a single prize and it was my favorite movie in the festival. It's a strange, curious journey into a black & white world where a town was ravaged by an explosion in a chemical plant and almost everybody lost their memories. A team was assembled to try to reconstruct the lives of all these people and one of the main tools they use is dream analysis. They are baffled by a strange woman who never sleeps but has daydreams of a mystical resistance fighter who has promised to bring down the system. Confusing and extremely beautiful, this movie reminds us of the works of George Orwell, the great Twilight Zone series and the classic Metropolis by Fritz Lang. Unmissable by fans of dark, strange, thought-provoking movies.
