Could be much better
11 October 2014 | by (Somewhere over the rainbow (Netherlands)) – See all my reviews

This movie about teenager Andrés could have been so much better, because the story is interesting. Not that much happens, but it's a real coming of age movie. And for me it was interesting, because we don't see many movies about this subject from Argentina.

Too bad that the director decided it has to be a sort of arty style. So you get dizzy from all the long shots turning around in rooms several times. And almost the half of the movie is out of focus or at least the biggest part of the screen. As if was meant to be some semi-documentary shot with a home-camera. But even the cheapest home-cameras have auto-focus, so you don't get this result. While the camera is very close on the subject you get a strange layout of the screen.

So I gave the movie a 5, mainly because of the story and not the way it was filmed.
