argentinian realism
18 February 2019 | by ops-52535See all my reviews

I usually never watch spanish languated fils, so this was an exception for me, its the language barriere that makes me choose different, and by choosing this film, i do see that i am missing some good piece of moviemaking.

its a film about a single mum and her fatherless baby boy, making a living from selling herself in the rough and dark backalleys of buenos aires.

its a film filled with realism and struggle to survive in a country that have less welfare goodies than norway.its an interesting thing to observe that to be a prostitute in argentina or norway or on cuba ,its all the same, there are nigerians whereever you go. its a rough life anyhow, and the character of this movie is not unique. poor baby growing up like this, even have to share the boobie with grown up men and thelike. its hard to see and accept.

sofia gala who plays the role of alanis, does a piece of acting you seldomly see in , for instance, american fliks over such issues. the interaction between mum and child are teardrippingly astonishing, and very well acted, its worth the ticket alone to see such appearences. the worst though were the ''rapelike'' session near the end of the film, ravaging and brutal, but needs to be done to survive till next day.

the grumpy old man do recommend this film, if you need an alternative to the mainstream '' this is the real world'' hollywood productions.
