Perhaps it is not for you
14 April 2014 | by avgaliaSee all my reviews

I had the chance to watch the movie during the the 16th Latin American Film Festival in Ottawa, Canada. I could see how much non-Spanish speaking people enjoyed the movie and I am surprised to see that US viewers from the IMDb rated the movie so low. Perhaps this is a movie that US audiences cannot understand because it deals with prejudice prompted by physical appearances. In Argentina people are not politically correct and the sort of things the movie depicts do occur. I believe this is a very smart movie because utilizes a humorous language to talk about pretty serious stuff.

This is a movie that ridicules people that are driven by what they see instead of by facts. In this case the perception is the height of the male character, but there are other perceptions that my drive people attitudes in other places that would produce similar results. Think of the skin colour.

The acting is very good and the story very enjoyable. The movie has a very agile rhythm; the non-speaking Spanish audiences may miss some of the peculiar "porteño" language of Buenos Aires because the English translation is a bit prudish.
