Storyline

An Argentine truck driver is apparently on a routine trip through Rio de Janeiro when he meets a mysterious countryman, with opposite personality traits. They ultimately travel back to Argentina together, meeting a beautiful Brazilian journalist on the way. The truck driver has revenge on his mind, and both the adventurous young man, and the gorgeous girl join him in this venture. The only thing the three have in common are their obsession for honor and justice, as each one sees thes ideals. In Buenos Aires, they will find many obstacles to find the truth and set things straight. Their biggest challenge may be determining which of the characters and family members are really on the side of the truth and honor. Written by A Verdade

Popular cinema Latin America needs!
12 October 2004 | by (São Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

This film is exactly the type of film Latin America needs to bring its own mass audiences back to the movie theaters. The artsy films do well in film festivals, especially outside their own countries and Latin America itself. But the masses see the misery and suffering of these art films every day, and are not going to come back to national cinema until a good part of the films lose their artsy, long and boring reputation - a perception held even by the so called elite, and become the escapist entertainment most seek, without reading subtitles for 2 hours.

This film is a step in that direction. Definitely not a film to win awards, or critical praise, it is however a crowd pleaser. A glossy American style production (but with the countries' own stars and nuances), this thriller is a winner. Another exceptional quality is its "regional" appeal. Of the three main characters, two are Argentinian/Uruguayan, and one Brazilian. Some dialog in Portuguese is sprinkled in, and the action in the film takes place between Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires.

It's great seeing two neighboring potential world powers in many senses(Argentina and Brazil) working together and showing a bit of the best of what each has, instead of these countries' usual reliance on distant continents for their popular entertainment. Bravo!
