An unemployed man in Buenos Aries, trying his luck as a private driver, befriends one of his passengers, an old Muslim man with a variety of health problems, and agrees to take him on a trip to Bolivia so he can reunite with his brother. As with many road movies, this warm comedy is more about the journey than the destination, emphasizing the growing intimacy between the principal characters and treating viewers to some lovely images of the Argentinian countryside. Writer-director Francisco Varone sets an agreeably relaxed pace, and the characterizations resonate; by the end of the film, you might feel as though you’ve made a couple of new friends. In Spanish with subtitles.
