Storyline

Marco Tucci is the standard tourist type, on his way to Puerto Deseado where he intends to fish for sharks. Or at least, this is the way he looks. But he is not well trained for game fishing and this fifty-two old traveling salesman seems a bit frail for the task. Couldn't he have a hidden agenda ? Didn't he go for a 2099 km drive all the way from Buenos Aires to Patagonia because Ana, his estranged daughter, lives there, with a view to reconnecting with her...? Written by Guy Bellinger

natural poetry in motion: road movie
12 January 2013 | by coiffuremixteSee all my reviews

Carlos Sorin is a name that will get me into the cinema, simple as that. Fa tih Akin and Pablo Trapero are two other directors that have the same effect.

This new movie is in the same vein as Broken Flowers and The Straight Story, I would rate this even higher than those two excellent films. The brilliance is in Sorin's eye for detail and his sensitivity to life and all its subtle under-currents (excuse the slight fishing metaphor, this is not a specialist fishing movie).

There is a continuation of Sorin's earlier fascination with Bergman's Wild Strawberries in the subtle dream references and the general plot, but this is a grounded and simple story with wonderful pathos and charming naturalistic humor, nothing pretentious or self-important here.

Who wants to see a movie about an aging guy going fishing in Patagonia and visiting his estranged daughter? If you've read this review then I hope you do now.
