Really good movie portraying Argentinean culture, excellent script and great acting
I really enjoyed this movie, was above expectations. Living as a foreigner in Buenos Aires, Argentina, I quickly recognized the strong Argentinean culture elements in this movie about relationships and how people interact in Argentina. The friendship is one strong element that is shown how it survives with all ups and downs, but also how businesses are dealt here locally is well portrayed.
Besides that, the directing and acting of the key characters is well done, very convincing, and able to time the moments and express themselves in their settings.
The camera work and music are two other pluspoints, well taken and integrated, and able to picture the city as well as the landscapes.
The script is relaxing with some some good and funnny comedy scenes, as well as some exciting scenes to keep the plot moving. The speed the story is told is good, not too boring while still keeping the viewer well maintained of how the plot unravels.
Really enjoyed it.
I gave it a 9 because I watch many movies, and i like this one a lot and I have not yet seen a 10.
