Martín Rejtman আর্জেন্টিনা, 1999

Bilouaustria's rating of the film Silvia Prieto

Shot with 40K$ on weekends during two years, this weird comedy with a non-professional crew has a certain flair. Now a lot of independent films tend to look like this, let’s say the Noah Baumbach type, but 20 years ago you could only find Jarmusch or Hal Hartley to propose this kind of atmosphere. Rejtman never poses and seems genuine in his mood and tenderness for its characters. Attaching losers, funny weirdos.
