Not as good as Derecho de Familia,but sill,a very good film
27 April 2008 | by ArgemalucoSee all my reviews

It's really weird that I go to the cinema to watch an Argentinean movie,but I decided to do that for El Nido Vacío because director Daniel Burman's previous film was the brilliant Derecho de Familia.The result is not as good as Derecho De Familia but,still,it's a very good movie from a talented director.El Nido Vacío has a very intelligent screenplay which has a lot of excellent dialogs.It's easy to note that Burman worked hard on the screenplay and I really appreciated that.The direction is precise and the actors bring great performances.But,I found some fails on this movie.While a lot of dialogs are excellent,some of them feel a little bit pretentious and forced.Also,I would have preferred some more dynamism on a specific moment of the movie.Still with that fails,El Nido Vacío is a very good movie and I recommend it.
