  1. But while this piquant, tapas-like movie (a 2003 film- festival favorite only now being released) asserts that landscape is a kind of destiny from which one cannot escape, Sorin takes delighted, serious interest in how far a person can advance psychologically, even if all roads lead back to a home at the end of the world.

    Endowed with captivating simplicity, gentle humor, rich humanity and infectious generosity of spirit.
  3. 75
    A delightful road movie.
  4. As stripped down as its title, this gentle Argentinian road movie makes much out of very little.
  5. 75
    Has no profound statements to make, but it does provide warm and fuzzy comfort.
  6. 60
    Intimate Stories stays doggedly, purposefully minor, in part because director Carlos Sorin and screenwriter Pablo Solarz want to explore the casual interactions of people doing nothing.

Nearly as boring as the Patagonian countryside where it takes place. Expand
