August 2001, Alsina (east to Argentina, close to Atlantic Ocean). In a little town with absence of population and resources, former soccer player Fermín Pelassi and his wife Lidia decide to create a cooperative buying an abandoned silo to restore it and hire people to work, hoping to bring back the business Alsina. Talking between others with friends as aged Antonio Fontana (a self-declared anarchist and Bakunin's fan), train station chief Rolo Belaúnde, redneck expert in explosives Atanasio Medina, businesswoman Carmen Largio and the naive not-too-much-smart but lovely José and Eladio Gómez brothers, all they reunite an amount of 158,000 $. Not having a bank in Alsina, Fermín and Lidia travel the neighbor town of Villagrán to leave the money in a safe box trusting in Alvarado, bank manager, to keep it while they try to negotiate with silo's owner to reduce the original price of 300,000 $. Therefore, Alvarado convinces Fermín to change the money from the safe box to his own bank ... Written by Chockys

Daniel Aráoz's character (Belaúnde) is a railway worker, so many scenes show the Alsina train station. The tracks have concrete sleepers, which weren't installed until the late 2010's. Since the film is set in 2001, the tracks would have had wooden sleepers. See more »

INCREDIBLE!! Best Argentinian movie.
19 October 2019 | by AgustinCesarattiSee all my reviews

For a film based on historical facts and not on a big budget, it's very well done. The cast is incredible and they were lucky enough to have the best actors in Argentina. The VFX, music, cinematography and plot are very well done.

My tens and I hope it wins Best Foreign Film at the Oscars 2020.
