Mi casa no es su casa

IMDb mark: 4

Have you ever wanted to see a latin 'telenovela' turned into a feature film? I know I didn't. But that is exactly what this is. It certainly seems that people who are good at one thing and attempt to do other things end up still doing the first thing. Let's just say that, so far, I haven't seen anything coming from Argentina that's not some sort of a soap opera.

-Cast: Natalia Oreiro is the most famous person in this movie, worldwide-wise. And get a load of Whoopi Goldberg as a waitress! 14/20

-Nudity: There is no nudity in this film. 0/20

-Ending: Think 'telenovela' ending; or soap-opera ending. If you're not familiar with any, it's meant to make women cry their eyes out. For this type of film, it's adequate. But still, I don't appreciate it too much. Of course, taste varies. 7/15

-Acting: Not bad, in my opinion. 8/11

-Plot: An Argentinian girl, about to turn 18, who leaves on a study trip to New York, decides to stay there. Her caring father goes after her to get her back before her mother can get too worried. 3/10

-Theme: Father knows best, very likely. But it's not a bad theme. 6/10

-Soundtrack: Didn't care too much for it. It's all Argentinian music, I think. Except when a bunch of people, including Whoopi, sing 'Killing Me Softly' in a restaurant, but that's not really part of the soundtrack. 3/10

-Genre: This is a drama. 1/4

-->Overall: 42/100

It's always interesting to see movies from other countries. But when I compare, let's say, 'Le gendarme a New York' with 'Un Argentino en New York', the French film wins hands down, even though it was made more than 30 years before this one. Maybe the Argentinians should have tried comedy, too. >From Swordlord, 1 sword down!
