Los Acacias

Argentina. Recommended
Another movie that is the reason for SIFF. Set in a place among people we never get to see unless we whiz by them without stopping while traveling. I often like Argentine movies. Pretty much a  2 ½ person cast, shot mostly in the cab of a long haul semi, and there are a number of long almost silent shots. Some movies this would bother me, this one it did not at all. I cannot say why. The action, for want of a better word, was almost internal to the characters, but somehow the viewer gets what is happening. Very effective acting, especially the guy. How they got that baby to do stuff on cue is a mystery to me.
