Excellent portrait
9 March 2007 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie not a long time ago, and I think is excellent. It's not supposed to be funny, it's supposed to be faithful to a really particular context: private countries clubs in the nineties, and the movie really fulfills that purpose. The whole plot which seems really superficial (in fact, it is a bit, but with a lot of humor) is just an excuse to shows what living in countries clubs was, in a very truthful way.

I think that everyone should consider seeing this movie, if only because it's very different from every Argentinian movie I've ever seen.
