The lives of contemporary street artists in Buenos Aires
8 March 2000 | by (Coral Gables, Fl) – See all my reviews

I saw PLAZA DE ALMAS at the 1999 Hispanic Film Festival, and found it enjoyable and enlightening. It features the lives of street artists in the Buenos Aires of the late 90's, who gather in a particular square, hence the title. I'd certainly recommend it to anyone interested in current Argentine cinema, and in seeing Buenos Aires life from a different angle.
