Hamaca Paraguaya: brilliant!, 16 October 2006
Author: guillejover from United States

If the movie seems long, it's because it's supposed so. This isn't a blockbuster film, nor is it anything like a big-budget flick coming out of Hollywood. This is one of those films that focus on film-making as an art, not a business. The way the movie is made is only a reflection of what the movie is about: a man and his wife, isolated farmers in Paraguay's back country, waiting. Waiting for rain, waiting for a son who has gone off to war, just waiting. I think Paz Encina took a big risk with this movie; many people WILL feel disappointed. However, those people that look at films as art, and not just as money-making endeavours, will see the brilliance in every single one of the movie's 78 minutes. The message of the film is perfectly portrayed, not only by the fantastic acting and the perfect soundtrack, but also by the right-on directing of Encina.
