It is very hard for me to understand why is it that people seem so reluctant to watch many fantastic Argentinian movies. I know this is not only true for Argentinian films. It may be expanded to any quite unknown film that is not originally in English.
This is a marvellous film. It gives you a whole new perpestive on how poor people live, and how hard it is for them to struggle against their needs and their awful condition. It is sad and hard, but it is incredibly real.
Julio Chavez is one of the best Argentinian actors. And Soledad Villamil is also fantastic.
It's a shame many people are not interested in it. They don't know what they're missing.

In an interview about "The Dark Side of the Moon", David Gilmore said something like the only thing he regretted was not having the chance to listen to that wonderful CD for the first time.
I often have a similar feeling with some films. It happens with very very few movies, but when it does, it's amazing. I regret watching them. I wish I could be that person who has never watched it and will do it for the first time. So that I could experiment those emotions the film evoke from me all over again.
"El Secreto de sus Ojos" is a very clear example of that. I just can't stop thinking about it and I wish I would feel all that again.
This is a movie about love, justice, revenge, getting stuck in time, moving forward, overcoming fears and so many more things. The performances are brilliant. The story is breathtaking. The direction is impeccable
The film itself is just perfect. And for those of you who don't think Argentinian movies could ever be that good, believe me: I couldn't believe it either.
I received the recommendation, and I know I've seen this. I remember more or less the plot, but I really have no idea of what happened. I mean, no details, no good or bad performances, no ending, no feelings or thoughts at all.
I guess that doesn't speak very well about the film, does it?
Or is it me the one with the problem?
