Disclaimer: Ricardo Darín is a demi-god who can do no wrong 😉
A love story set in the murky underworld of traffic accident insurance scams may not sound like the most enticing of films.
But I was drawn in to the development of the relationship between the two main characters (played by Ricardo Darín and Martina Gusman) as they struggled to find a way out of events which seemed to overtake them.
The two characters had evidently experienced misfortune in the past, but we are given no explanation as to why they find themselves in such situations. We are merely placed into the night time of Buenos Aires and allowed to watch as events play out.
There are scenes which are uplifting, charming, sad and violent, and there are places where you will definitely wince.
Give it a shot!
