  1. Cole Caudle's rating of the film Las acacias

    I needed this movie after the assault of a Christopher Nolan Batman double bill. A film that is so confident that it is not afraid of silence and stillness. Damn good.

  2. Annie Gentil-Kraatz's rating of the film Las acacias

    This film is the opposite of an action movie but you get plenty of time to see the emotions and feelings develop and unfold. The baby girl is truly amazing and the timing of her smiles and reactions is perfect. Great joy to start the New Year with a bit of Spanish...

  3. madhatter's rating of the film Las acacias

    una pelicula extraordinaria

  4. Matthew_Lucas's rating of the film Las acacias

    A woman and her baby hitch a ride with a lonely truck driver through a mutual acquaintance and head out from Paraguay to Argentina, along the way forging an unexpected and often unspoken connection. A film filled with silences that says so much while hardly saying anything. A strangely touching and unique road trip movie that captures the rhythms of the road and awkward, tentative friendship. A disarming gem.

  5. Coheed 2.5's rating of the film Las acacias

    Interesting as a character drama but the problem is that it uncomfortably fits into the stereotype of 'World Cinema' from the 2000s onward, the same visual look, a minimalist composition interchangeable from other films from this category, and little sense of a voice being shown, which means that for a film that is about a growing relationship there is not that much emotional connection within it.

  6. hitgirl's rating of the film Las acacias

    Amazingly confident director. A script that can fit in 5 phrases. The absolute road movie.

  7. xrystyna's rating of the film Las acacias

    would have been perfect if it had ended 2 minutes before it actually did

  8. Zissou's rating of the film Las acacias

    Demanding and tiring. The baby is the engine of the truck.

  9. Matt Richards's rating of the film Las acacias

    A solitary man who drives a logging truck for a living, has to give a lift to a stranger. As a bond begins to develop this act leaves him both challenged and conflicted. It's incredibly simple yet surprisingly moving. That which is unspoken sometimes speaks the loudest. The baby is fascinating. 4 stars

  10. Lucas Granero's rating of the film Las acacias

    Sorprendente no solo porque logra sortear de manera asombrosa todo los presupuestos que uno intuye solo con ver los primeros minutos de la pelicula, sino porque tambien se trata de una gran pelicula por el hecho de que decide transitar el dificil camino de lo sutil y lo simple, sin nunca trasformarse en un film compleciente. "Las Acacias" es, por lo contrario, una obra que confía en su público y en sus personajes.

  12. Pedro Franceschini's rating of the film Las acacias

    Not really the aesthetics I love the most, but it's still pretty touching.
