Las Acacias Reviews
A flat film but in a way it's never boring - you wait for something, there is some slight touch of suspence. It's shot with great tones. It's simple camera work, but it's not much more needed, less is more here. The ending is powerful, but I don't feel it was worth the wait to be honest. It's a rather short film, but the seventy minute build up is too long for three minutes of greatness.
Ultra-realistic and not a film for everyone, and even if I felt parts of it myself it was too boring for me.
5 out of 10 thermos cups.
All this said, I think it‚(TM)s a little unfair and one‚(TM)s enjoyment of this movie would very much depend on mood. The slow build-up of emotion and humdrum surrounds of the Asuncion to Buenos Aires road actually drew me in and this is a fine example of that kind of movie that manages to be diverting without any flashy show at all. Worth seeing.
