An interesting view on Argentinian recent history from a homosexual perspective
3 January 2010 | by epsurvSee all my reviews

This film is sort of a hidden jewel, you'll specially enjoy it if you have some background in Argentina's recent history. In short, the dictatorship kidnapped people who where thought to be part of communist guerrillas. This one in particular is the story of Telmo, a homosexual tailor living in a small town with his mother, whose house is suddenly invaded by one of these supposed guerrilla fighters, which he names Olaf to disguise his real identity. Turns out Telmo helps this guy hide from the military but it all gets complicated because he's currently working on the wedding dress of the daughter of the general who is chasing Olaf. The acting by Luis Ziembroski as Telmo is incredible and believable, shows what a good actor he is. I wouldn't give thumbs up to Dady Brieva's portrayal of a homosexual which I think is a little over the top and kind of tacky, but that's pretty normal because he's been a comedy actor all his life and has that sort of sketchy style. If Dady's character (Norberto) hadn't been there, the film wouldn't have suffered much, though he adds some spice at times and some comedy as he interacts with Telmo. And of course, he is the co-director. The photography is pretty good, sceneries are quite simple but it works well as it is, and the editing is very dynamic and keeps you interested, my compliments to Gerardo Vallina and Dady Brieva for the direction and Ricardo De Angelis for the photography. The script is solid too and I think the dramatic subjects this movie deals with are developed with a lot of respect and good taste. All in all, a good surprise and I would certainly recommend it, specially if you're Argentinean, but I think people from other countries with a little background knowledge would enjoy it as well.
