Minimalist Argentinean feature
16 December 2016 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Low budget (they can't even afford a toll booth) Argentinean first movie documents the miserable life of (singer) Verónica Gerez who divides her time between collecting tolls on a near deserted highway, her ailing dad and doing "Ave Maria" in church for the collection money.

Our heroine resolves to change everything by taking on a job selling the "How Most Things Work" encyclopaedia for her dad's old associate, taking to the road with his experienced instructor and the woman's fat ten year old. The car breaks down and the stop-over at the failing road house changes everything.

Nothing really happens. The dog may not be the one in the satellite. The woman with the white Mariachi truck may not be her mum but the film does slowly build a kind of snake charmer fascination.
