Storyline

This dramatic comedy addresses the terrible degree of disintegration Argentina has reached. Corrupt justice, unemployment, an absence of prospects for young people, accelerated decadence in the standard of living, increasing violence, a lack of ethics - all part of day-to-day life in the country. The story revolves around the life of Leopold, a middle-class father; his wife Isabel working for a decadent comedian; Beto, the son, a taxi driver; and Martita, the daughter, a divorced and unemployed hairdresser. All live in 'harmony' in a 40 square-meter apartment. One day Leopoldo takes it upon himself to donate blood. The next day, he is summoned once more to the hospital. His life is about to change, and radically so. Written by Gonz30

i can't recommend it.
2 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

the jokes in this comedy are mostly of a subtle nature. if you have trouble understanding Argentinian accents, you might not understand them. the movie is kind of a downer really because up until the end the guy thinks he has aids. and he's worrying how is he gonna tell his family, what's he gonna do now he's dying, how long will he live? i mean i don't think it's a great comedy personally. i watched it twice. i liked it better the second time when i put the subtitles and the tiniest nuances of humor came through despite the Argentinian accents, and the second time i knew he actually didn't have aids. so i could enjoy it more. but i mean how can you enjoy a movie where the guy is worrying about having aids the whole time? it was interesting but kinda too dramatic and depressing to be a comedy.
