A very respectable, enjoyable film
16 February 2001 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

Just when I began to feel that nobody who speaks Spanish can make a serious film, along come the Argentines again. At first, I asked myself if I would have liked this picture if it were an American production, or was it just the exotic feel of it that kept me going. But as it evolved, I grew more and more captivated by the developments, and realized that this was a well-scripted piece, with an ongoing plot, and all roles were well-performed. Generally, a couple of hours very well spent, and I can recommend this film.
