One of the worst movies ever
20 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

Being Argentine, I am a great admirer of its cinema.

As it was very praised by a local newspaper, and having Viggo Mortensen on the cast, we went to see it.

What a disappointment! Except for Vigo, its cast is amateurish (in the bad sense) when acting. Text is ridiculous and makes no sense. An absolutely bad and awful movie, none positive points at all.

It's very much (probably inspired) like some Glauber Rocha films, which at least made more sense sometimes. This one doesn't.

To top it all it was in 35mm film and framed in 1.33 screen, with rounded corners.

It's an experimental film, as should be announced as such. I will never trust that newspaper again (pagina12) when they recommend a movie.

I'm not sure why they go so many stars here either, because it certainly does not deserve them.

Compared to a recent Argentine success, "Relatos salvajes", which probably got high rates too, people should be careful how they judge films. You should walk out of this movie 10 minutes after it starts, which is what I should have done.

Don't be fooled by the recommendations. Go see it if still want to, but knowing you will see an experimental film made by director that seems to have just come out of a film school, even if he didn't.

Absolutely forgettable.
