I wouldn't disagree with the previous comment by a fellow Argentinian, but I think that beyond the scarcity of the script I'd rescue from it the director's attempt to show how life can be so different 100 Km away from the big city. The entire plot is quite predictable and extremely simple, and it almost end up in being a movie for nostalgic. However, I'm still thinking it is a good go to portray Argentine life outside the Argentina's "common subjects for foreigners" (Buenos Aires, Desaparecidos, Tango, Football and Patagonia) and to make good cinema without falling in the easy trading side of it. This and other recent somewhat independent films make some resemblance with the Italian Neo-realism of 1955-1965, possibly not that shinny or innovative from the direction's point of view but yet remarkably good scripts, and performances: Pure form of art achievable with limited budget.
