A very clever movie, with loads of references to nouvelle vague stuff. This film lets you wonder about the effects of cinema on society, as the villagers turn into their filmheroes, but since they are edited backwards, upside down and in the wrong order, the imitated heroes become quite hillarious. Some of the characters are very interesting, especially the local film critic. Agresti hates critics, and this can be found in the interaction between the critic and the B-actor/hero, a tragic drunkard, who visits the village one day. Loads of sub-themes make this movie very lively, although some of them are not that interesting. The criticism of the argentine dictature and the introduction of television are not that great.
All goes wrong however when the infamous actor actually enters the village. One of the important points in the movie is the complete isolation of the Patgonian village, but since the actor arrives by train this fantastic concept falls totally apart. Worth a try though, or, in the spirit of the film: try a worth.
