Just when I was about to aknowledge the fact that Argentina´s cinema nowadays is practically 100% dramatic, this little, funny and well-crafted comedy came along. Witty dialogues, swell performances and an outstanding photography round up an interesting production. The premise is in itself enjoyable: two friends from Buenos Aires (Argentina´s capital city) make a trip to Córdoba, a province covered in hills and mountainous landscape. One of them falls asleep while driving and they collide against a sign beside the road. While trying to solve how to continue with the original plans, one of them finds a marvelous old-fashioned hotel, that was once a must-see for celebrities but is now abandoned. Since nobody appears to claim the hotel, they decide to become the new owners and regain the majestic appearance the hotel used to possess. But their troubles are just beginning... I strongly recommend this film: there´s laughter, adventure and lots of entertainment. Besides that, I´m relieved: it seems there´s more to argentine cinema besides social crisis and tears...
