A foresee overlooked at its time
3 March 2003 | by bouduSee all my reviews

"El viaje" is a simple movie. But it has the most precise look of Argentine's reality at the beginning of the nineties. Pay special attention to the tragicomic representation of Carlos Menem, by Carlos Carella. If people would have paid more attention, maybe Argentina would have been a better place today. Sad to see it now.
