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.

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

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

This sweet little tragicomedy about life's absurdities plays out as a buddy movie in which two damaged men from opposite sides of the world find unexpected common ground.

The narrative is slight, but this beguiling film finds its strength in the deftly observed relationships and feelings of the key players.

If it weren't based on a true story it would still be a great yarn, but real life often manages to outperform our imaginations when it comes to the human condition

The absurdity of life is beautifully captured in this wondrously simple, yet complex film from Argentina in which fate and the incongruous collide. Nothing is what it seems, yet everything is exactly what it seems
