Argentinian Cinema : A meaningful but rather slow film. ! ! !
What happened in Argentina in late 1970s is a matter of great shame.It was a time of universal sorrow as many ordinary Argentinians were troubled,harassed,persecuted and killed by roguish military regime which had absolute power.Argentinian film director Israel Adrian Caetano has depicted some of these unimaginable sufferings in his award winning film "Crónica De Una Fuga".He has based his film on four important protagonists who are imprisoned at a secret location on baseless charges.Buenos Aires 1977,is a name given to these people's hardships.As there is an escape involved,it might be said that "Buenos Aires 1977" keeps veering from drama to thriller.The drama part of this film is convincing as we get a chance to be a part of human suffering.it has been shown without resorting to a lot of striking scenes of suffering.It is in the thriller part that much of the film's action is located.As the drama part is rather slow,it is being felt that thriller part has handled pressures very well.Buenos AIRES 1977 is a nice film for those people who believe that the dignity of ordinary human beings should be preserved at any cost.
