Wow! I just got back from seeing this film at the Sydney Film Festival, and thought I'd check out what people thought - when I saw the previous rave I had to register on IMDb just to be able to say NO WAY! I was so excited about this film, having spent some time living in Paraguay, but have to say it was the most boring film I have ever seen. The long distance camera shot meant you could hardly ever see the actors faces, which didn't much matter because they weren't actually speaking or showing any expression anyway. The voice overs sounded so unemotional, which given that they were mainly talking about the death of their son I found a little odd.
I can't believe anyone paid anyone money to make this movie. There are so many rich and fascinating stories to be told in Paraguay, but this movie gave me nothing!!
