Amazing film - simply SO close to my heart, 7 October 2005
Author: dreammaniac

I don't know what can be thought about this film in the rest of the world, even in the rest of Chile. Because it talks about something in particular, and I do not really know how universal it is. I cannot look at it objectively. I am part of it. I know it. Never had a movie touched me so close, and I mean in the geographical but also in the heart. Because it is like my best friends talking about us - it is mad. And it is also marvelous. I know the movie is at least good. I don't know if amazing for the rest... for me it is. It is marvelous. Brilliant. Honest. So honest in fact, it made me cry. I swear the screen became a mirror. And this was catharsis in a way that I had never really experienced this close. Chilean cinema has been plagued forever with anecdotes. Anecdotes that do not have much to say apart from the action and only in a residual way. This is a cinema that takes it's time and talks about himself. Alberto Fuguet, the director, opens his chest and let's us into this world, this world that is my own so in his chest I am myself. It is a beautiful film, very well acted, intelligently shot and with the best dialogue I've heard in some time. And as his friend ask Gastón in a point - if his music is any good... Gastón can only say: "I blush with it - I think it's good".

Then again, who'd want to see this film with such a subjective intent into it - but I do know this: even if it may talk so particularly about things, in doing so it becomes general and that happens here. This movie will talk through particularity to everyone that enlists in it's search and exposition - the communication is culturally worldwide and as such I expect it to go a long way in the hearts of those who experience it, as it did in me.
