    I just hope people around the world can understand it and idetify with it as I do being an Argentinian. But it wasn't properly apreciatted even at home, so I don't have great expectations... I loved it and I'm dying to watch La nina santa.

    For better or worse, the filmmaker says nothing directly political about the cruel fate suffered by her people, but the dark poetry of her allusions is powerful.
  2. The title means "The Swamp," and you may feel you're in one after 103 minutes with such a generally unlikable gang.

    Martel can barely contain her disgust, and like Bunuel before her, she knows just when to cut the laughs and go straight for the throat.
