Brilliant multi-faceted view of Argentina's impoverished youth
1 May 1999 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

A brilliant piece of work from a 28 year old Argentine director who knows his subject, BRAIN DRAIN, aka "Fuga de Cerebros" is a comprehensive, thought provoking film which not only addresses American cultural supremacy in today's & yesterday's Argentina (a reality long ignored by a country so boastful of its "European-ness", a myth this country loves selling to the world) but also explores alienation, poverty, love and racism among other topics. Technically sound, and featuring powerful performances from teenage actors, the picture excels in its realistic, crude view of the lot of Buenos Aires' disadvantaged youth, not unlike what exists in the Western world's other great metropolises, European and American alike.
