(I agree with the first commenter that it recalls Kaurismäki, which is of course a compliment, but I really don't see any reference to Almodovar).
I'm not usually the kind of person who likes everything he sees, or at least finds always something good in a movie, but this movie really touched me.
This bitter-sweet comedy shows us how we are: lost, absent, trying to figure something out, but not really making it. Beyond the little scenes of absurd banality, you can have some insight in the life of Argentina and the social and economic hold-up it went through (illustrated by the pitiful arrangements the main character is making without gaining anything).
The first thing I thought after I saw this was: That's were french social comedy should be today if it hadn't been sold to TF1 and other profit-only based production companies for whom the receipt is to «make it look American».
