User Reviews

20 November 2007 | by billion_mucksSee all my reviews

Damián Szifron showed his talent with the fantastic series "Los Simuladores". He proved worthy of maintaining interesting premises with great, well thought, provocative scripts. His characters are mysterious yet rich in human provokations and a good, universal humor.

"Hermanos y Detectives" is not the conventional policial story. Two brothers, one working on the police and another a genius child, will solve crimes with a crystal logic, making the viewer believe he/she's watching an Agatha Christie vivid tale.

The Argentinean landscapes are transformed into appalling and brave, hypnotic and attractive. The performances are natural and new school-like, appealing to realism. The originality with which each chapter develops leaves the viewer asking for more. Great Work from Argentina!
