I had mixed feelings about this movie until I spoke with a friend and he showed me with a little bit of wisdom and an open mind what was all really about. At first I thought of Gato Negro as one of those movies, with a nice actor like Luciano Cáceres, a script sometimes long and ambitious, and a story somehow a little bit too familiar. Yes it's true, the hero that makes almost everyone of his calls unethical and borderline malevolent is a new comeback since Breaking Bad. But I found in Gato Negro more than that, I see it as one of those movies that you need to know Argentina to really appreciate it. Not because the storyline wouldn't be understood, but because it would lose the rich work of making a good scan of Argentinian culture, people and history. It's more than Tito Pereyra's life story, it's the little things in the acting, in the script that makes this a more than interesting film to watch.
