Storyline

On her 84th birthday, Emilia gets a call from her sister in Misiones inviting her to be matron of honor at a family wedding. Emilia tells her family that all of them are making the trip. Her two daughters, their husbands and children, one great-grandchild, and one child's friend jam into a camper van atop an old Chevy pickup. They leave from Buenos Aires. Engine trouble, a toothache, a stray dog, mosquitoes, and the heat complicate the journey. Cousins kiss, a melancholy brother-in-law tries to re-kindle an old flame, and the infant's father shows up uninvited. The screen is full of close ups. "Well, that's life," says Emilia.

very very very dull
19 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Its bad, sorry 'naturalistic'. A bunch of unlikeable people go on a road trip and you don't find out anything about them. Or maybe you do, its just that we decided we couldn't last longer than about 45 minutes into the film. We'd have lasted a lot longer if it had just been a film taken by someone poking a camera out of a car window for an hour, because some of the scenery could have looked lovely, and there would certainly have been more action.

I had wondered if it was a cultural thing, if it was a problem with the humour not being translated well into the subtitles, but to be honest I really think it really is that dull. There is an issue with the style of movie and the subtitles, in that its often hard to work out which of the characters mumbling in the background the subtitles actually refer to.

There have been some comparisons with little miss sunshine but there is no comparison. One has interesting characters well developed in a very economical way, poignant moments and some real humour, the other has a guy swearing at toll booths every few minutes.
