Too many hands in this "melting pot"
11 December 2000 | by (Rio de Janeiro) – See all my reviews

This co-production (FIVE co-producers) has a promising subject: the melting pot which Argentina (particularly Buenos Aires) became between 1880 and 1900, roughly. While this theme has been well treated in North American movies, where a similar history is shared, the theme has not yet been definitively developed in Argentine cinema. Brazilian film did it to some extent a few years ago in the Oscar-nominated QUATRILHO. But not on the grand multi-national scale which this film represents. Once again, a good idea, and a good cast(of the correctly dominant immigrant groups I must add)is frustrated by the excessive number of directions the film wants to takes, clearly reflecting its five co-producers. The result is, sadly, an underdeveloped plot with underdeveloped roles, and wasted performances by some of Europe and Argentina's best actors. Better luck next time.
