LAS ACACIAS tells the story of a long distance lorry driver (Germán de Silva) who agrees to drive a woman (Hebe Duarte) and her 5 month old child en route from Paraguay to Buenos Aires. A subtle and tender road movie exploring loneliness and the pain of loss, LAS ACACIAS grows into a searingly poignant tale about a passing encounter between two strangers and the unlikely bond that grows between them.
Little is spoken, much is conveyed. The beauty of subtlety, of gently observed emotion, of life - of day to day life, is engrossingly played as one travels alongside these three...
I loved this film. Very gentle and human.
WARNING - don
Great film but at minute 59 (about 2 thirds through) the film just stopped. iTunes seems to have no easy way of reporting faulty rentals so thanks Apple for wasting our time and taking our rental fee!
