simply excellent
21 February 2011 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

Excellent portrait of two "bonaerenses" characters,

both sinked in their failure of life seeking for running away of their fears and past.

At the end, it is a love story.

Great performances of Darin and Gusman.

Excellent filming sequences, you will feel inside the dark world of these characters, in any sense. The director (great Trapero) shows all of his capability to make secondary characters,

performed by anonymous players,

as real and natural as any of the regular and sadistic people living in your BA suburbs neighborhood. Simply the best 2010 Argentine film

(from my point of view, even better than overestimated "the secret of their eyes")
