It is not about an economical crisis it is about middle age life
19 April 2010 | by vilasudSee all my reviews

This film; together with "El Secreto de tus Ojos" are representatives of the best of the new Argentinean Film industry strengthened with some other Latin American and Spanish partners.

In spite of some weaknesses in the youngest widow performance (Juana Viale), this movie is touching and very well done.

With a stunning shooting and a deep psychological approach to each character through minor and well placed hints; this thriller is an true masterpiece about how to achieve it without long and boring scenes.

I would like to quote a sentence of the leading role "Tano" that could be from any middle aged men in the western world :" When I was a teenager I used to believe in God; I felt that He failed to me; then in my youth I believed in Democracy as a tool for solving everybody's needs, it also failed to me, now I am convinced that the only one thing that deserves my faith is Money"
