The renaissance in South American film-making continues with this simple tale of a worker in a shoe factory who persuades a colleague to pretend to be his wife for a reunion with his brother. With pared down dialogue and skilfully underplayed performances, this impressively understated story of 'ordinary' lives, blends deadpan humour and emotional restraint to moving effect.
