Movie Info

Rubén is a lonely truck driver who has been covering for years the motorway from Asunción del Paraguay to Buenos Aires, carrying wood. However, today's journey will be different. This morning, in a motorway stop near Asunción, Jacinta shows up an hour later to begin a journey by track which is going to take her to Buenos Aires. Wath's more, Rubén finds out at that very moment that little Anahí, who's 8 months old, will travel with them- It is not the best beginning. As kilometres go by, th relationship between Rubén and Jacinta will grow. they will slowly meet and sip into each other's soul. None of them talks much about their lives. None asks much either. It's a few word journey but it is not a silent one.

A swelling meditation on wounded hearts and rekindled hopes.

September 6, 2012 | Rating: 5/5

A study in simplicity, perhaps too much so.

September 4, 2012 | Rating: 3/5

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.

September 3, 2013 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

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."

Audience Reviews for Las Acacias


A small gem that makes perfect use of a realistic approach to tell a sensitive story. Mostly silent and showing more than saying, it takes its time to present us the characters and the dynamics between them - and Germán de Silva is 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.
