Wow. This film made me want to go back to Argentina, my birth country. (My family emigrated to the US when I was a small kid and I haven't been to visit Argentina since the early 80s.)
This is a beautifully crafted little story. The effective use of white/snow gives the story a purity and sweetness that enhances the feeling of loss and sadness that the main characters feel. I adored every minute of it. The main character is so cool. You have to speak Argentinean Spanish in order to really appreciate how adorable he is.
I love how this movie shows a different side of Argentina yet it's an Argentinan picture through and through. (The guy who rips off airplane parts is a classic example.) Even the "small" characters in this film are engaging. The nurse, the tour guide/stripper, the taxi driver. (A nod to Argentina's Jewish population.)
This movie would be a great double feature watched with the original Insomnia.
