Storyline

After the fall of the military dictatorship in 1983, successive democratic governments launched a series of reforms purporting to turn Argentina into the world's most liberal and prosperous economy. Less than twenty years later, the Argentinians have lost literally everything: major national companies have been sold well below value to foreign corporations; the proceeds of privatizations have been diverted into the pockets of corrupt officials; revised labour laws have taken away all rights from employees; in a country that is traditionally an important exporter of foodstuffs, malnutrition is widespread; millions of people are unemployed and sinking into poverty; and their savings have disappeared in a final banking collapse. The film highlights numerous political, financial, social and judicial aspects that mark out Argentina's road to ruin. Written by Eduardo Casais <casaise@acm.org>

Memoria del Saqueo (2004)
20 November 2006 | by canallon40See all my reviews

I do not agree at all with the comment made about this film as I find it even malicious and narrow-minded. Who the hell cares if the film lacks structure or pacing? The most important thing is that real facts are well-presented and narrated very clearly. Regarding humour, I am afraid there's no room for humour in here. I recommend to whoever wrote that awful review to go and check out the latest Jim Carrey's film if he or she is looking for some humour. Unfortunately, I suspect that the author of such one-sided point of view cannot tolerate anything that does not come out of Hollywood whose films are indeed well-structured, well-paced and contain humour but at the same time are mostly idiotic, shallow and meaningless.
