Proves that Americans don't hold the patent on familial dysfunction, but it's also a sincere personal essay about writer-director Trapero's Argentinean family.

The cast doesn't look like a troupe of actors; it could easily be taken for an ordinary family with plenty of physical and psychological bumps and bruises, but always loving.

It's a profoundly rich and beautiful picture, in its unassuming way close to a masterpiece.

Director-writer Pablo Tapero keeps the proceedings low-key and realistic. He doesn't hit you over the head with his ideas, yet he manages to say a lot about human nature.

Getting released so close to Little Miss Sunshine can't be a coincidence.

Not Coming to a Theater Near You
June 21, 2005
The film sets up a familiar dichotomy: traditional values, common sense, and a sense of nature, contrasted with urban sophistication, neurosis, and selfishness.
Rich Cline

Funny, telling and more than a little frightening

Filled with the kind of universal truths that know few language barriers.

Not a movie of ideas but an emotional and tactile experience of economy-class travel.

Despite some nice performances ... it never gets out of the predictable low gear.

This is all about boredom, anger and sex, and what we get most is the first on the list.

Trapero focuses on hazy morning sunrises and landscapes rushing by, and the way he frames the action in that tiny camper is like an extended, bravura stunt.

The movie rarely if ever crosses the border between familiarity and surprise.
Patrick Peters
Empire Magazine
April 1, 2006
The cast is as spiritedly naturalistic as Guillermo Nieto's cinematography, but there's no sense of place (let alone insight), and for a road movie that's a fatal flaw.

November 8, 2004
The film has humanity to burn, but its loose structure makes it hard to connect with the multiple characters.
Ed Gonzalez
Slant Magazine
October 11, 2004
While the film is completely unpretentious and moves at a pleasant pace, it's also lightweight.
