Don't Cry for Me, I've Plan B...
31 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Plan A is 'make a great film that runs under 90 minutes'; PLAN B is 'make a great film'. By all rights Director Marco Berger's tale of an Argentina man's plan to win back his girlfriend by wooing her new love interest should have had me hitting the FF with its long, extended takes and silent montage sequences. But the acting by the two leads and Berger's bravado in not rushing his tale of unlikely romance pays off. It takes the full 100 minutes - so stay with it - but I found this film genuinely compelling - sometimes irritatingly so. I wanted to say 'who cares' and hit the OFF button but the guys are so truthful and down-to-earth that even the implausible premise seems perfectly likely. Mark PLAN B a success.
