Interesting first film; well worth seeing
22 May 2007 | by (Seattle USA) – See all my reviews

For a first film, it handled intimate as well as larger subjects in a subtle and heart-felt manner. It gave me an emotional understanding of the economic crisis in Argentina in 2002 without lecturing. It also gave me a feeling for the influence of Italy on Argentine life. It had a lot of early Godard with no hint of imitation. Good music, too. If you're used to Hollywood films this might not be your cup of tea. If you have had a broader exposure to film from around the world,however, this will not be a slow or boring movie. The film gives the characters the time they need to portray their deeper dimensions. This is an interesting film that leaves you feeling good and caring what happens.
