There are a lot of movies about the beginning of adolescence. Probably, the most famous is Rob Reiner's "Stand By Me". "Buenos Aires 100 Km." is not a bad movie: the main problem is that the plot is too scarce. The characters are well-build: you can feel identify with them and you can return to that age. But that's it. The movie is only a look to five kids becoming teenagers. We don't have surprises, we don't have very deep moral... That's the big difference between this and Rob Reiner's film, or the Italian "Io non ho paura". The photography and edition is fine, the sound is a bite fair. The performances are quite good, specially the one of Juan Ignacio Perez Roca. The aesthetic that the director Pablo José Meza used is the appropriate to generate that village climate (calmness, empty, loneliness, distant). My conclusion: If you want to remember that time of your life, it is a possible choice (specially for Argentinian people). If you want an adventure with boys becoming adolescences, you are in the wrong way.
