Storyline

While in Argentina, renowned Mexican muralist David Siqueiros paints the mural "Ejercicio plástico" at the country home of newspaper owner Natalio Botana. Set in the 1930's, this lovely historical reconstruction serves as a testament to the creation of a masterpiece, while depicting the controversial private and public events that shaped its materialization. A complex storyline which includes Argentina history, romance, drama and much more. A story of ethics, infidelity, love and hate around the renowned David Siqueiros, no one is innocent here; everybody shows weakness and values as well, there is no black and white. There are multiple tones, as in a Siqueiros painting. Written by AnonymousB

Very interesting, intense and sensitive film by Hector Olivera
26 September 2010 | by kaimenkfSee all my reviews

I wish if there were more films like this in Argentine production. interesting, very tell written...an intense,100 % true story, a complex storyline which includes Argentina history, romance, drama and much more. Hector Olivera has many valuable films in his career and is today one o the most acclaimed directors of Argentina. He uses tremendous actors, as Luis Machin , Adriana Celentano and Carla Peterson giving the best of themselves. A story of ethics, infidelity, love and hate around the reonwned David Ciqueiros. no one is innocent here; everybody shows weakness and values as well. there is no black and white. There are multiple tones, as in a Siqueiros painting. It is a real shame this film didn't receive the corresponding public answer. Maybe in this times of so many commercial films we tend to discard this tipe. Anyway, I recommend you to spend some time watching this so well made movie.
