Great acting performance
26 November 2005 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

I was profoundly touched by this movie. There are two main stories. One about a french woman, Hélène, living in modern world, going to Argentina to adopt a baby. The other one is about Juana, a woman living in a rural world with her son, hopelessly left behind by the bolting modernization and capitalism of her native country.

The two womens paths will cross and they will try and find support and comfort in each others misery.

The performances by the actors in this movie, especially by Aymará Rovera, are truly exceptional. It is a great story telling us that we are sharing one world, having different problems and sooner or later will be forced to acknowledge each others co-existence.

It is a hard kick in solar-plexus of the roaring capitalism, exploiting the poorest and leaving them helpless behind. Go and see this movie if you get the chance. Please do.
