The film presents the style of Argentina, something which is a reflection of the ideas and theories of that time. A few days before the communist revolution, the local cinema had its first go-ahead. The Copacabana Cinema was founded by Manuel de los Santos, a Chilean revolutionary, in which he had "re-discovered" the Argentinian cinema. He was the first to apply the techniques of the new cinema to film for the South American market, and to continue it from there. Copacabana Cinema made cinema accessible to many people, but, it is also a social symbol, with many sociological and political points. It must be said that the film's conception of the film is quite different from the theatrical film-makers of that era. The producer gets hold of the idea that the cinema can have the qualities of art, an idea that is confirmed in the movie itself, but it's not easy to manage to use the ideas in the film, especially when the basic idea is that the film is a great art-form. The cinematographer's technique can be suggested by Jorge Tostado, the principal cameraman in the film. Tostado is one of the pioneers of cinematography, he was one of the ones that described the use of a camera with an angle in an article called "The Diving-Glass Mirror". The concept of a mirror is not so far-fetched, because the film has a certain "creepiness", and the audience is supposed to feel it. That idea can be connected to the cinematography in this film, because the direction is strong and confident, and the camera is all over the place. The cinematographer's technique can be described by the use of a tripod with a clock. The speed of the camera is much slower, with a characteristic that is not found in any other Argentinian cinema. In addition, the camera takes part in the story, it can be suggested by the filming of the lovers at the end of the film. Another cinema-technique is the use of camera waves and the composition of the camera's background. If this technique is used well, it's possible to show a depth and an individuality of this film. The photography in this film is great, the film is great, the film's ideas are great. But it's not only a cinema that is great. It has a great social and political symbolism, which in the film is expressed by the cinematography. This film is of the Argentinean film-making tradition, although its style has not been much developed. The film contains many controversial aspects, its style is artistic, it has great and innovative ideas, it's always important to analyze this. The film is about the expression of the state of the Argentinean cinema, and of the cinema's power in a time of change, and its power in this change is symbolic. Because this film presents the ideas of the change and shows the beginnings of it, it is very important to analyze it. This film is a good film, with a lot of beauty. But the style is often a little hard to understand.

Carlos Lopes is not exactly a simple-minded man, but he is particularly sensitive to the need to find and share some place in his world. Carlos Lopes, and in particular his neighbor, Francisco Chiquito, are both devoted to their pets. Francisco owns a cat who lives on a farm with his family, and Carlos lives with his beloved dog, Lola. Even though the two men have different worldviews, their devotion to the animal companion is too strong to give way easily. And this is only one of the beautiful elements of this film. One other is its subtlety. As a consequence of their poverty, Carlos and Francisco have no money to provide food for their animals, and when they do not receive a payment from their landlord, they are forced to buy from a local vendor, who is well-known for selling and providing low-quality meat. As a result, Carlos' cats must sleep in the barn, Francisco's dogs must eat their meals in a barn, and their cats must eat in the barn. And at the end of the film, when Carlos realizes his cats have no longer need his barn, he is touched by his animals' unwavering loyalty to him. This is a simple story, but it succeeds in expressing the importance of animals in Carlos' life. Carlos' life is complicated by his wife's death, his dog's death, and his own relationship with Lola. Through his pet animals, Carlos discovers love and responsibility, and Lola's presence strengthens Carlos' relationship with her, as well as with Francisco. The soundtrack is beautiful, as is the performance of the cast. Like the animals in this film, I recommend it highly.

Most people who liked this film didn't particularly care for it and the fact is, as other reviewers have pointed out, that there are only a handful of films in the history of the cinema which have made such a mark on their own time, and it is sadly a case of choice between decades and years - and that is what this film does so well. It is always obvious from the first frame that we are dealing with a film which is mainly concerned with itself, not with any other subject, but it is always apparent from the first frame of the film that the story is one that should be told. The overall effect is very well done and is a fitting tribute to those who have worked on the project. The first person narration is well used, and if you have seen it, you will definitely recognise parts of the first person. The particular storyline is interesting - a man growing up in a small town in Brazil, and his journeys towards adulthood as a professional climber and runner. He is doing something which he considers impossible, but in a way which is rather heroic. The film has several remarkable shots, the highlight of which is a shot in a meadow in Rio de Janeiro, where we see the Indian scenery on the horizon. The very bright colors make the scene very eye catching and impressive. The acting is top class, with all the actors delivering very strong and convincing performances, especially in their roles as the older man, the climber, and the father figure. The younger actors, especially the boy, did very well in their roles. The music of this film is very good. The opening song of the film is haunting and works very well with the other score. Another very strong piece of music is the theme from "Ibiza", which is very fitting and emotional. This film, as I said, is not your typical Hollywood film - I think a lot of people expected a piece of art, but this film is an extraordinary piece of cinema, and I have recommended it to almost everyone I know. I highly recommend this film to anyone who likes a film about real life, about love, friendship, drama, adventure, or just a film that is able to make an impression on you.
