Good movie to watch
2 November 2011 | by labadboy2005See all my reviews

If you're willing to disregard the poor sound,dated methods of filming, and non English speaking dialogue you'll love this movie. I'm not Argentinian, but I saw this when I was a boy and I remember it to be quirky with charm about it. As an adult I was able to understand the language and innuendos better which made it more enjoyable. An isolated group of people living in two camps; one tormented by growing old and one conforming to it. These two collide and the characters are driven to extremes in order to preserve their way of life. Wonderful movie, very enjoyable, but I do suggest watching it with someone who is Argentinian.
