| Still holds well after all these years
It's always a risk reviewing films you enjoyed very much years ago. Sometimes you are left wondering how could you enjoy so much such a terrible picture. This is not one of those. Reviewed recently, it still holds very well. Aristarain films a loser, an extremely clever man forced to flee his city and take a job far away for his union activism who challenges the system and gets away with it facing very powerful people. The scam, devised by a fellow worker, involves getting a compensation for the injuries caused by a labour accident, faked. The main character faces a corrupt system, very powerful enemies and yet wins. One of those inspiring "victory of the underdog" stories. Luppi excels at his role, a man challenged who puts on the table everything he is, his family, his life, without even blinking, and triumphs. Shot in an efficient and expressive way by master Aristarain, it really delivers a morale. I wonder why the Argentinian filmmakers are so good at portraying their country within the conventions of genre films.
