User Reviews

 
Definitely not super, but kind of classic.

Danish director Ole Christian Madsen must have felt the need for a change of pace and setting from his usual style. While his other films are tight, well-composed dramas, SuperClásico benefits from a loose, more free flowing construction and as the film plays out you realize that style and mood are a perfect match.

This film is in no way groundbreaking, nor is it meant to be. The title is a comment on the film itself, and the characters are all acting as they're supposed to be in a dramedy of this kind.

However, you can't help but to be engaged in the story, mainly because of some great performances and the beautiful Argentinian settings. All the supporting actors work well, without ever being more than 2-dimensional, as the character development is reserved for the main players. Especially Anders W. Berthelsen does a great job at conveying a man who's nearly given up on life until he is introduced to a change of scenery.

SuperClásico is recommended if you're looking for a sweet film with just the right amount of sentimentalism and temperament. It will in no way rock your world, but it's damn charming with very few weak moments. It recalls the feeling from Vicky Cristina Barcelona and Lost in Translation a little bit.
