Critic Reviews for Argentina (Zonda: folclore argentino)

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (4)

  • This is an expertly deejayed party without name-tags (until the credits), which on some level may be an appropriate manifestation of a shared, passed-down music that defines something collective about a people.

  • "Argentina" provides a fine introduction to that country's traditional music and dance for those already familiar with it. The contradiction in that statement is why this pretty film is also a frustrating one.

  • Carlos Saura's Argentina is really a concert film, unique in that the only spectator is the camera.

  • Though the dancers dance beautifully, the singers sing melodically and the musicians play soulfully, it is all without meaning, like one seamless but context-free concert on a bare stage.

  • The vignettes are connected, though -- visually through Saura's habit of enlarging and distorting imagery, and spiritually through his unabashed love of his subject.
