Adrián Caetano presents an interesting twist on the story of immigration. Instead of the typical poor worker from South America struggling to cross the border and survive in the United States, we get a different perspective with immigration within South American countries. This topic is very under-represented in the media although in reality it happens quite frequently. Also highlighted in this film is the racial discrimination that is all too prevalent throughout South America. The main character Freddy struggles to win the respect of the Argentine customers of the café that he works at.
Artistically filmed in black and white, the characters seem frozen in time and very distanced from the audience. It's as if we are watching it all play out on a documentary running on the History Channel. An interesting aspect is the television that is constantly showing some soccer game, usually between Argentina and Bolivia, symbolizing the hostility between the two countries that are forced to coexist within the café.
