Storyline

Rubén is a lonely truck driver who has been taking the motorway from Asunción, Paraguay to Buenos Aires, Argentina for years, carrying wood. However, today's journey is different because of Jacinta, who accompanies him as his passenger all the way to Buenos Aires. What's more, Rubén finds out at the very moment that her little Anahí, who's 8 months old, travels with them. As kilometres go by, the relationship between Rubén and Jacinta will grow. They will slowly sip into each other's soul. None of them talks much about their lives. None asks much either. It's a few word journey but it is not a silent one. Written by Anonymous

ponderous road movie leading to love ... possibly
6 March 2012 | by (uk) – See all my reviews

This is one of the most boring, pointless films I have ever sat through. I fell asleep three times. It is just a truck drive through Argentina where the driver takes 60 minutes of the viewers time to pluck up the courage to ask his lady passenger for a date - to go for another truck ride next week.

The reviews that I read before seeing this, alluded to much depth and in the performances which more than made up for the lack of dialogue. I was expecting a far higher level of subtlety and gentle revealing of the characters and their stories. Little was revealed and that was clumsily told.

No cultural insight or visuals about the places they drive through. Little background or depth to either character. Just lots of driving ... oh and a few toilet stops for the baby. Dull would be a compliment. The baby pulls some cute faces.
