Because of some things I read about this film, I expected intrigue. Because of other things, I wondered, romance? It was all of that. This really wonderful film, a film for ADULTS, hurrah, is nuanced, funny, frightening, repressed, yet satisfying. I loved it. The subtitles did not interfere with a thoroughly satisfying evening at the movies. A wonderful story played out with an appealing cast. I am still reflecting about the questions it raised.

While 2 1/2 hours long, this movie has everything--great acting, directing, story line. Each character is well developed and the story is gripping. It's a dual them--solving an old murder mystery, as well dealing with love and making the right decisions in life at the right time. Foreign movies are so much better made. If this were made in America, it would have been sappy. Highly recommended if you like a movie with lots of meat....it has everything.

A wonderful combination of mystery thriller and romantic passion set in Buenos Aires.

This is the one that all others will be measured by in the future. What a film this is.
I was mesmerised by faces that worked like landscapes of human emotion. Every second of the landscapes tells a story within the story. Complex and realistc like the characters within it. I have not been touched by a story this way in a long time.
