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.

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

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.

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

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

A study in simplicity, perhaps too much so.

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.
