Format: VHS Tape
This Argentinean film deserved winning the prize at three international film festivals for best actor and best film. The story is filled with without-letup suspense. A demolition foreman makes a deal with his friend and co-worker to defraud their mining company, which was using overly large amounts of explosives, resulting in workers being killed. The friend would fake trauma from an explosion causing him to be unable to speak.

The friend is killed in the explosion and the foreman acts as if he was traumatized by the explosion and cannot talk. He is offered a half million-dollar settlement, but he refuses to take it. He wants to go to court to reveal to the world what the mining company is doing and also receive a court order for the company to pay him damages.

Will he succeed? Will the owners of the company find out that he is faking and that he can talk? How can he keep himself from talking for months, during sex and during his sleep? Will the Indian who saw him planning the deception with his friend reveal what he saw? How will the company treat the Indian? Even if he wins, will the company seek revenge? How will he keep himself from talking for the rest of his life to assure that no one finds out that he was involved in a fraud?

This colossal artwork remains as a true giant star in the astonishing universe of the best Latin American achievements ever made.

A man with a dark past, who is living his golden years finds nothing to do in Buenos Aires and then a magnific opportunity comes for him. He gets a job with a North American Company and one Saturday night, he will meet a man who works in the same company. After several drinks, this man will propose him a curious bet: this minuscle man has watched that the inssurance statements the mudeness is typified as a cause of indemnization: so the idea is to argue mudeness by derived wounds from a simulated work accident: that sum is equivalent to half million dollars, but the prize to pay is extremely high, you will have to live with this fact for the rest of your life.

By obvious reasons I won't tell you the rest of the story, but with all those variables you will understand why this movie has been so awarded in the rest of the world. A suspenseful and chilling script that will grow with such intensity level as few times you have experienced: I mean, you will not watch special effects: you will assist to a legal conflict and an terrible way of living for the rest of his life: to support this lie.

Not only a masterpiece, but one of the top five Latin American films; besides one of my top two hundred cult movies in any age ever made.

A movie that represents a dark era in South America, during dictatorial times, this movie was in Argentina a space of rebellion.
