Wonderful movie. The "not for everybody" is related to a comment overheard during the projection of the film. Somebody near to us said: "There is nothing going on!" I guess there will be people thay may said that, but the problem is that this is a movie that requires the spectator to adapt to the pace of the film. There is a lot going on during the whole movie but you need to pay attention and to have "feeling" for what is happening on the screen. The acting by Darín and Morán is superb, but it is not just them. Short appearances by Claudia Lapacó, Norman Brisky and Chico Novarro are memorable. The dialogues are credible and smart. If you go to the movies just looking for fights, chasing cars and the like, this one is not for you. But if you like to be moved by the story told on the screen, that may have to do with your own life, do not miss this one.
