Satisfied My Curiosity
Really groovy, gloomy movie peripherally about the world's southernmost town, beautiful Ushuaia, Argentina, where I just visited two months ago. Just that setting alone was enough to get me to see it. Unfortunately, a small nightclub, U! Bar, where one of the scenes was shot, no longer exists (I went looking for it). However, a great Irish pub, Dublin, does exist in Ushuaia and totally rocks with the bartenders playing chillout CDs and replicas of R2D2 and C3P0 lean against the corner near the restrooms. There are also great parillas (stakhouses) there, there are great chocolate shops and Tierra del Fuego National Park is nearby. In the summer (January) it doesn't get dark there until nearly midnight. This movie's not bad, either, but really is a nice introduction for anyone wanting to travel to southern Argentina.
