Superb performances and a deft script combine to make this touching story about human relations a real gem. It is very much within the Latin idiom and will instantly be identifiable with countless millions of Spanish speakers, being as it is Argentinian cinema at its best. That is not to say by any means that others will not appreciate its delicacy and humour, since we all know about wise, understanding mothers and their overgrown"baby" sons, which this films so well explores.
