I think that more than half of all the Argentinian movies I have seen were starred by Ricardo Darín. I don't know if it's lack of good actors, but, anyway, all I can say is that he had great performances in every his movie movie I have seen and in this one it isn't different.
About the movie, people who watched Nueve Reinas could say that it's a bit slow and, in fact, it is at the beginning, but once you start to get involved with the plot and with Darín's character this slow pace turns to be something that bring us the feelings that the main character might be feeling.
If there's one thing that could be better explored, in my humble opinion, was photography, mainly in the scenes at the bush and the desert.
Anyway, if you became a Bielinsky fan because of Nueve Reinas, be prepared to find a completely different movie. Whereas in Nueve... you realize what's the movie about since its beginning, in this one you have to be a bit more patient. However, the plot is still clever and in the end you'll hardly be disappointed.
