  • Summary: Abelardo (Grandinetti), a handsome entrepeneur arrives in the village of Villaserena, Bolivia, bringing with him a "radio station" that is just four loudspeakers set up about town that blast out news, local gossip, and music. This, of course, stirs up old rivalries and secrets.

  1. 80
    Enchanting, multilayered fable.
  2. The story is fascinating for its simplicity and its inherent truths about the downside of progress.
  3. 75
    Comedy with a light-hearted flair. The cast is charming, and Garcia is especially easy on the eye.
  4. Reviewed by: Ken Fox

    Delightful Bolivian comedy, which also works as a sly critique of mass media.
  5. An easygoing exercise, impossible to dislike but not especially memorable, engaging but finally derivative:
  6. 50
    What appears to be the thrust of the story -- the unraveling of a society -- loses out to a tame, romantic triangle subplot.
  7. Agazzi's movie rather provincially hints at sexiness, humor, and satire without actually manifesting them.
