"The Window" is about an elderly man living a slow-paced life on a ranch in Argentina. It is contemporary -- about 2010. It's in Spanish with English subtitles. Acting is terrific -- I completely forgot that it was a movie. The cinematography and views of the Argentinian ranch are lovely, the people and their relationships enjoyable to watch. This is a slice of life movie, giving the viewer a peek into another world.
As not a great deal happens, some viewers might be bored. And I'm not sure why I wasn't. I just enjoyed watching these people live a very different life from my own and being filmed so beautifully. If you like "The Red Balloon," you will probably like this movie.
