A swelling meditation on wounded hearts and rekindled hopes.

A study in simplicity, perhaps too much so.

Even with its initial long stretches of silence, the film never feels clinical or cold, but rather compassionate and curious.

Um filme sensível, tocante e admirável.

The filmmakers have managed the near-miraculous feat of creating two characters who aren't larger-than-life or quirky or anything other than what you and I might be in their place.

The taciturn and ultimately tender Las Acacias defines the term "slow-burning charmer."

This lovely film is ultimately an articulation of something at once simple and universal: the discontent of traveling through life with sad resignation.

Virtually nothing is said in the first half hour and little in the next 50 minutes. There are no interesting encounters, the scenery is unremarkable.

Exhilarating and moving. This is a very satisfying love story.

It's very touching: a road movie with every kind of changing scene and mood, both inside and outside the cab.

Fantastic performances that stay with you and a director who isn't afraid to let you think for yourself.

A moving drama set against beautiful Latin American backdrops - just don't expect fireworks.

Audience Reviews for Las Acacias

A small gem that makes perfect use of a realistic approach to tell a sensitive story. Mostly silent, appropriately showing more than saying, it takes a carefully calculated time to present us the characters and the dynamics that are gradually established between them - and Germán de Silva is absolutely fantastic in an Oscar-worthy performance.

A beautiful tale of two individuals who find each other out of necessity and form a real relationship that literally crosses borders.
