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

Las Acacias
22 November 2012 | by See all my reviews

You don't know what they're thinking, you don't know how they're feeling, you can only guess. That's what makes this film intriguing and gives a "real life" feel to it. There is no background intrusive music, just the hum of a timber lorry lumbering (!) on the highway to Buenos Aires with its human cargo of man, woman and baby. One of the adults seems to have a lonely life without a family, the other one is part of a large and loving family, but there are hints of problems in their backgrounds. By journey's end you are hoping that all three will share a happy future together. By the way, there's no violence and only one brief bit of swearing.
