A teenager hits the road for a crash course in the ways of the world in this amiable comedy-drama. Daniel (Tomas Fonzi) is a 17-year-old orphan growing up in a sleepy village in rural Argentina. Daniel feels trapped in his town, has grown tired of living with his grandparents, and hates his job; one of his few pleasures in life is sneaking into a local movie house to watch the latest picture from blue movie star Sabrina Love (Cecilia Roth). Daniel enters a contest in which some lucky man will win a date with the sultry actress, and his heartfelt letter earns him the grand prize; now Daniel has to get to Buenos Aires for his moment of glory. As Daniel hitchhikes from one side of the country to the other, he has a number of remarkable experiences and encounters a handful of unusual people, including his brother (Fabian Vena), who hasn't yet accepted his parents' death; a free-thinking writer (Mario Paolucci); and a reporter (Julieta Cardinali) with amour on her mind. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
I got this movie because it had Cecilia Roth in it. I liked her "All About My Mother," and so I wanted to see her in something else. She is not the main character here, so I was a little disappointed.... A young man from a small town wins a contest to spend an evening with Sabrina Love, who is the star of some show on a porn channel in Argentina. He travels to Buenes Aires and has a variety of adventures, none of which are that compelling. He gets to go out with Sabrina and they have sex that night. The next day, he also has sex with the young girl he met in town, a television reporter. Hmmm... young man goes to the big city and quickly sleeps with two beautiful women who really don't know him. I think it is participating in male fantasies, don't you? The film ultimately doesn't reveal anything insightful about love or sex or erotica.
