There are where you look forward to find a hero, but watching this film you will find your self immerse in the hard realty of someone else. This is a very simple movie, and absolutely realistic. I am Argentinean I have lived several years in Patagonia (where the movie goes on). Eveithing that you see, that hostile but amusing context is there. This is a movie about a guy, 52 years old, in the middle of a crisis. He discover that there is no much place in this new "dinamic" world, since he don't have education (hardly he can read). He is very longly, even if he lives with his daughter. In this moment is when Sorin mange to show again something real. Coco (the MAN) assist a woman with a broken car in the route, and tow her car 150 km and then fix it without desire compensation. Well, I have read comments of people that find this extremely rare...my friends, that happened to me too...my car broke and and actually people stopped to help!! Well, this people that Coco help gives him a present. A dog. No any dog, a "Dogo Argentino". it is like "The" Argentinean dog. Perhaps the most remarkable "hability" of this dog is the loyalty. The film keeps going, and Coco find him self in a lot of new situations because of the dog. Well, you will become immerse in a adventure. In the world of coco. It is a very simple movie, excellent job. Doesn't need anything else.
