The vision of Intimate Stories is amusingly warm-hearted without being cloying or sentimental; the landscape may be harsh, but the performances are inviting.

While the Argentine filmmaker takes his time, his film isn't tedious.

Audience Reviews for Historias mínimas (Intimate Stories)

A low-key bittersweet comedy-drama set in rural Argentina. The main characters are 3 simple people who are traveling to a city each for their own reason. Not much happens, but everything in this movie has a truly genuine feel to it. What doesn't seem important to the viewer is a big deal to the main characters, as as in real life, little things make a difference.
