That rare movie made of talk with not an ounce of tediousness, propulsive by the force of its intelligence and non judgmental sensitivity. Courageous and bold storytelling.

A story about how to fight and how to lose (always, against the powerful). The story of a very special family and friends around. Good work.

A group of losers end up discussing the facts of life in a small argentinian town, how their hopes disappear as time goes by, and the moment they decided that worthless piece of land became their place in the world, the one place you will never leave, or if you do, still you are going to come back again someday. Touching coming of age drama made with the archetypes of a western. All the actors are wonderful, and the dialogue is very rich and lingers in your mind long after the credits have rolled.

A very good and interesting film to watch.

A memorable, yet probably a bit forgotten film from the 90's that perhaps reaches deep into the soul of what it is to be from Argentina. The film has a very well crafted screenplay which on one hand works unfolding the general storyline and on the other hand, intelligently depicts political, social and historical picture of this great proud South American nation. The film also at times has a bit of feel of Sergio Leone flick, especially "Once Upon a Time in America" and this is no wonder as Adolfo Aristarain assisted the Italian great in one of his films. Cecilia Roth acting is outstanding here, as is of few of the other actors. I think this film should be shown to anyone interested in Argentine culture - it simply would be a great introduction.

erase una vez una obra maestra. Recomendable para dar de comer a todo chavalillo afolescente con ganas de encontrarse y encontrar a esos extraños que le rodean desde siempre.

Volvi a ver esta peli despues de haberlo visto en el '92 en la Argentina. A pesar de los anos, no ha perdido su encanto y es mas, creo que mas que nunca el mensaje de la peli de encontrar ese lugar donde quieres plantar raices es algo muy importante en este mundo de globalizacion y tantos vaivenes. Y ni hablar de Cecilia Roth! Vaya actriz.

Una pelicula Argentina increible...
Es la historia de un pueblo en la republica Federal el cual es un santuario para su gente. Sin embargo, este pueblo corre el peligro de desaparecer por una represa que se llevara todos los lugares donde la gente crecio, crio y amo...

Aristain es el Rohmer politizado argentino: una historia aparentemente sencilla para exponer sutilmente de la lucha de clases y el exilio. Jose Sacristan y el chaval lo bordan.

Es grande entre las grandes. Una película que trata sobre la ética pero genera más emociones que las que tratan de sentimientos

Bonita, con un poco de moralina, pero como es argentina y no muy actual, se digiere bien. Lo mejor, el personaje de Jose Sacristan, canallita pero no.
