Did You Know?


The original ending of the film showed Julián in the space ship with Mercano and his friend going to Mars. Director Juan Antin thought than this ending was too Hollywood-style and opted to use the current ending showed on the final cut. See more »

Mercano is back!
7 October 2002 | by See all my reviews

Great movie. it has a new style in argentine cinema. It combines fantasy and neorealism. Antin , Caetano and Grieco, are the new names of this new kind of cinema. A cinema that shows the terrible things that are happening in argentina with genre movies. It´s not ¨pizza birra y faso¨ it shows the same but it also entertains people with classic genre plots.

Caestano is following the same path with ¨Un oso rojo¨ , a path that started with Mercano, el marciano (antin) , Bar Imperial (grieco), both from 2002. Must see this movie! Mercano is back from the tv serires, better than ever.
