Fabián, a magician from Buenos Aires, saves his money from weddings, birthdays, and bar mitzvahs, and uses a hidden camera to document a week-long trip to the Falkland Islands where he has a patriotic plan: to impregnate a British woman. If 500 Argies do this annually, the islands will soon be overrun with children belonging to both cultures. He spends his first couple of days in Stanley doing reconnaissance, setting his sights on Camila, whom he's first seen in church. He chats her up at an Internet café. They go out for drinks, then dinner, then to the see the King penguins and a 1982 battlefield. Back home, editing his Dogma 95 film, he receives a final message from Camila. Written by
People are too hard on this movie..yes its shot amateurish ,yes its a morally questionable topic..but its original and entertaining. The camera works and documentary kinda style works for this. People are missing the point. Its a Dark Comedy folks. Its only semi serious. Its actually hard to tell, its subtle. The" Argie", as he dubs himself is clever and overall likable. He has a lil woody allenish egoism..( love that) If u are from the faulkland islands, OK, u may not like this movie. Also..on a side note. Very few people know anything aboutnthe faulkland islands and Argentinian history. This gives a lil insight. Yes, its from the Argentine point of view but thats what art is. Its a point of view.
