Ok, honesty...I originally picked this film to help me while studying Spanish in Buenos Aires, but I watch many films. This one is terrific. I thought it was going to bring up "sons of the past" but it completely side tracked historical issues and had a very contemporary plot. It's a sad situation that can go many ways and while there is an excellent resolution, I didn't expect it, nor would I label it a Hollywood ending. It was original and very well done. Compassion for all the characters, even the ones you don't want to like. In the best tradition of Argentine filmmaking! Well done!
