Fascinating coming-of-age picture
16 August 2011 | by See all my reviews

The film tracks the stories of 3 young Argentine men--army buddies who are discharged at the same time--who each confront adult decisions for the first time in life: a bicyclist who is confronted with a gangster-like race promoter; a university student who favors certain reforms; and a son of a wealthy film producer who wants to make more personal movies. The title means "Face It," and that's what they do: How they navigate their situations, and how they get along with each other, make up the plot. It sounds boring, I know, but it's well done, with brisk editing and good acting, especially from Leonardo Favio as the bicyclist. The jazzy score is by Leandro "Gato" Barbieri in a very early outing. There are also lots of shots of Buenos Aires at the time. Totally worth seeing.
