Unoriginal but enjoyable
9 July 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

'Villegas' is an Argentine road movie. Two cousins - one straight-laced, neat and tidy; the other a free-spirited, irresponsible slob - journey together to the titular town to attend their grandfather's funeral, their polar opposite personalities ensuring they get on each other's nerves all the way. Once at their hometown, they interact with their family, learn various truths about each other and gradually come to an understanding. Plotting by numbers, then, with cardboard cut-out characters and story developments that will surprise no-one. But it's enjoyable, undemanding entertainment - indeed, if you're a fan of soap operas, you'll love this.
