All Critics (10) | Top Critics (1)

It's fun-enough to watch, but it's nothing more than that, even though it seems to want to be.

Little more than yet another foreign title that could be described as 'nice' or 'pleasant' that has been shipped over to indulge local audiences who don't want to have to think much when getting their annual foreign language fix.

Trespass

A wall-to-wall delight...the type of distinctive cultural comedy that will hopefully defy Americanisation.

This is a superb human comedy.

Sydney Morning Herald

A film about repression and constraint that keeps its emotional range carefully under control.

Truth is certainly stranger than fiction, it seems.

A charming, if predictable, story which succeeds primarily on the deft, and often subtle, comic performances of the lead actors.

This film deserves a far wider viewing audience than it has gotten. The showing I went to was packed, purely from word of mouth raves. A lovely, gently humorous story about a curmudgeonly hardware store owner who finds himself sheltering a young Chinese man who is newly arrived (and lost) in Argentina. It's funny, poignant, and has a truly memorable opening scene.
