Don't consider any formula even yours
3 August 2009 | by sdelgado_lunaSee all my reviews

An incredible experience, if you are studying cinema you will surely avoid every topic this movie talks about, or even its aesthetic; but nevertheless every ingredient that you shouldn't mix blend perfectly here. A 4 hours which worth the experience.

You possibly feel that you aren't looking a motion picture but as time goes bye this initial sense was left aside completely; you are really seeing a motion picture (sure you do) and the off narration, the music , the sound, the colors and the stories match in a way you'll never imagine. A bonus is a glimpse of the Bs.As. country life something that even Argentinian urban people ignore.
