Argentinian actor Ricardo Darín was supposed to play a role in the film but passed on the role. See more »
I wasn't expecting much out of this film because of the user ratings. But oh boy I was wrong! I still do not understand those that rated the movie so low. Viggo Mortensen does an amazing job- the movie is mesmerizing and grim. The shots are amazing; excellent photography and attention to the detail. The story line is also very original. The setting in the delta region of Argentina adds to the "mystic" aspect of the story and it's the perfect setting for such a film- making you feel almost uncomfortable at times. I really enjoyed watching it. Yes, it's slow paced, but I think it is on purpose, since it adds tension to and suspense at the same time. Very enjoyable if you like good cinema.
