Movie Info

In this offbeat drama, Carlos (Hermes Gaido) is a young man who plays drums in a punk rock band; Carlos never knew his father, and he was adopted at an early age by a musician from Italy. Carlos gets word that his adopted dad has passed on, leaving him his most prized possession, his accordion; with the squeeze box in his hand, Carlos decides to hit the road in search of the father he never had the chance to know. As Carlos wanders the back roads of Argentina, he meets a number of eccentrics and fellow travelers, including a mysterious faith healer (Beatriz Gutierrez), a tough but good-hearted prostitute and her pimp (Laura Frigerio and Alejandro Fiore), and a priest (Oscar Alegre) who may be able to guide Carlos to his long-lost father. Toca Para Mi's soundtrack features the work of accordion master Yayo Caceres; the film was shown as part of the Forum of New Cinema collection at the 2001 Berlin Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
