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.
