Strange font issues in subtitling for some words. Not seen in any film before, foreign or domestic, and should have been corrected.
Liked the intelligence, maturity & openness of Lorenzo and family although not very realistic unless Argentinians are better at maturity & raising families than most everyone else.
A bit too stereotypically good encounters bad, and a little too made-up & unrealistic in how it all unfolds, but I suppose the point was to show how good can change bad behavior. Well, maybe.
If you liked this movie try "My Brilliant Friend".
