  2. Edgar Echeverría's rating of the film White Elephant

    Es como "ciudad de dios" pero en Argentina...

  3. Huw Morgan's rating of the film White Elephant

  4. raggiodisole's rating of the film White Elephant

    Faith, sorely tested. The limits of what it can achieve are exposed here, in the unforgiving slums of Buenos Aires.

  5. swamiJ's rating of the film White Elephant

    I need to watch some Disney after this!! as a Latino, I am more than familiar with the drug/poverty/religion dynamic. This one is a sorrowful eulogy to theology of liberation. Lots of questions raised. Realistic, no punches pulled. Not for the faint of heart or prudish. Parts of the music are beautiful folk and others are by Michael Nyman, surprise!

  6. Emilionautilus's rating of the film White Elephant

    Aunque con un inicio maravilloso el elefante blanco de la película va derrumbándose conforme la trama avanza.

  7. Adrian's rating of the film White Elephant

  9. aloxondro's rating of the film White Elephant

    É tipo um Cidade de Deus em Buenos Aires com um padre e não tão bom.

  10. Carlos Filipe Freitas's rating of the film White Elephant

    Though likeable and interesting, some scenes didn’t put all the excitement possible, evincing some difficulties on maintaining an easy flow and denoting some ups and downs in the narrative. Review and Rating: http://alwayswatchgoodmovies.blogspot.com/2013/05/white-elephant-2012.html

  11. CCLZA's rating of the film White Elephant

    The performances are predictably terrific and heartfelt, but Trapero aims high and fails with a pretty artificially looking "social commentary" film that pales in comparison to his recent other works.

  12. Matt Richards's rating of the film White Elephant

    Trapero aims big here. He's gunning for GOD and tackles faith, corruption, poverty, purpose and mortality all at the same time. It's a lot to take in as we zig-zag through the slums of Buenos Aires with a multitude of characters and side plots. The performances are fine but we never spend enough time with any one individual to truly develop empathy and by the end are no closer to understanding why? 3 stars

  13. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film White Elephant

    Trapero se introduce cada vez más a un cine comprometido http://bit.ly/Mgz2us

  14. Eirik Smidesang Slåen's rating of the film White Elephant

    Considering this being a film by the man who made the excellent «Carancho», the white elephant is both pale and slow moving. The big budget and a great cast only underlines the lack of a good script and creative direction.
