fine Argentine film about a dog, an out of work mechanic and libido issues, 25 September 2005
Author: Martin Togher from London, England

A beautifully made film about a down on his luck out of work mechanic (who specialised in "simple mechanics") and a pedigree dog he is given after rescuing a woman who had broken down 150k from home. Her mother decides to give him a pedigree dog left to her by her husband, despite being broke, the man accepts the gift and then has to work out how he can support himself and the dog

Set in Patagonia, the film focuses on the man, the dog, and both of their libidos - neither seem at all interested in sex (the man hasn't seen his wife in 20 years) together they set off on an adventure, of sorts, involving dog shows, a drunken dog exhibitor, stud fees, and a cabaret singer.

funny and touching in parts, well worth checking out.
