sincere, simple film making at its best
24 April 2003 | by (Istanbul, Turkey) – See all my reviews

I was almost not seeing this film, taking into account the negative comments of another user and the average of 6 it received from IMDB users. I went to the screening at Istanbul Film Festival because we had nothing better to do and left with great contentment that only a sincere, non-pretentious and lean film as this could provide. it reminded me of jarmusch's "stranger than paradise" with it's close to life approach. characters are real, acting is very good. it introduced me a fresh, new director from Argentina.
