Storyline

Michel, was born in Latin America, "on the other side of the world", as the script emphasizes, of a French father he hardly knew at all. He goes to Paris to start a new life. His only possession is a painting which his father left him, along with the advice: "If you ever need to sell the painting, do so in France, where it's worth a fortune." But Michel discovers that his father's tumultuous and secret past comes along with the valuable painting. Meanwhile, Clara, a middle age Spanish-Argentine mother gets a strange present from a now dying childhood friend in Buenos Aires. It's a roll of Super 8 film which brings back very strong, and emotionally charged memories from the 1970s and before. Written by Gonz30

A journey to the past
28 September 2004 | by (Rio de Janeiro) – See all my reviews

This film talks about the influences of the past on the current life of the characters. All of them were linked to a sad episode in Argentina and are currently trying to overcome the effects of past facts and happenings. The first character is a young man whose dad flew to Argentina from Europe. After trying to sell an art object he came to conclude that his father could be linked in some way to Holocaust. The other 2 characters are a middle age couple of friends who probably were active terrorist and faced a frustrating experience in the past. The film shows that their daily routine and professional life is still influenced by those experiences. The film is an interesting attempt to show how deeply a fact in our lives can influence our whole life.However it lacks some more expressive conclusion.
