Storyline

Against the backdrop of an increasingly-powerful police state, Miguel returns to Buenos Aires. An innocent bystander, he's shot by a rogue cop, Morea, at a political demonstration. To avoid scandal, the police place Miguel in the hospital as a John Doe, where nurses are drawn to his bedside. A tipster notifies the press and Miguel's father and also phones Morea with threats to expose and even kill him. Meanwhile, Miguel is in a coma, able to hear but not speak. Eventually he rouses himself and begins his own hunt for Morea, who remains calm, cool, and lethal. After the drama of cop, victim, and vigilante plays out, there may be worse times to come.

Charly Garcia as guardian angel
14 March 2003 | by manuel-pestalozziSee all my reviews

I saw this film when it was released in Argentina. I remember it as a successful mixture of road movie, thriller and fantasy story with a beautiful atmosphere. There are many nice shots of central Buenos Aires during a chase scene. The film's star is Charly Garcia, the country's biggest pop music idol (at least he was then). He plays a male nurse and is the very active, somewhat quite surrealistic guardian angel of the main character, a young man who drives into town, gets severely wounded by riot police on horseback as an innocent bystander and has to be brought to safety for some obscure political or criminal reason. Charly Garcia composed a beautiful and sophisticated, atmospheric soundtrack I would very much like to purchase on CD.
