Interesting story poorly taken to the screen
10 March 2004 | by Andres24See all my reviews

Santiago Carlos Oves is a heck of a screenwriter. He writes better than hi directs. Same happens in the U.S. with Brian Helgeland.

Ariel (Ricardo Darin) comes from a six year exile due to the military government in Argentina. A friend was killed and his father was dead with no clear reasons. So he investigates. A sinister company was involved in this matter. Problems are: acting, intensity and climax. All related. I don't think that Mr. Darin is a "bad" actor. The same for the rest (his girlfriend played by Luisa Kuliok, Lorenzo Quinteros, Juan Leyrado, etcetera). So Mr. Oves couldn't lead these actors. Are was unable. Maybe because this film was his debut in the director's category. Let me give you an example: the sex scene. Poor directed. They actors don't feel anything, neither do you. An argument: They discuss as if they are having a coffee. Luckily the intention you couldn't find, with great difficulty you can see it near the end. A great photography by Carlos Torlaschi (in the dark scenes) and a very good music by Ulises Butron. I rate this movie: 4.5 out of 10. Andres.
