At late 19th Century, the Argentinean Pampa is changing. Martin Fierro is a renegade that fights against the power and corruption that try to subordinate him and to take away his most precious value: freedom. With his strength and courage, Martin Fierro represents the fight for justice. Based on the most important book of Argentinean Literature, "The Gaucho Martin Fierro", the film intends to rescue the current value of the story and the epic character of Martín Fierro for an audience mainly young, especially students and families. Written by
This movie it's one animated adaptation of the epic poem written by José Hernández, which is considered the national book form Argentina. The character designs are made by the comic book writer and cartoonist Roberto Fontanarrosa (Who also worked in "Boogie, el aceitoso", an excellent animated film)
This is an excellent adaptation, very faithful to the book, and despite the cartoonish (But stylish and well made) designs, it keeps a serious, solemn tone, with only very few moments of humor and comedy. The animation and the music are simply beautiful, and the voice performances were pretty good too. This movie is pretty underrated (I can't believe that it only have 6.0 of score'. That's pretty unfair, considering that it was an excellent animated film) and definitely deserves more appreciation.
