LAS ACACIAS    
PABLO GIORGELLI  (Argentina 2011)
Germán de Silva, Hebe Duarte
A middle aged lorry driver reluctantly agrees to take a young
woman and her five–month old child from Paraguay to Buenos
Aires. With little dialogue the director uses sidelong looks and
occasional remarks to shade in an unspoken backstory of love
and grief. The two leads perform a remarkable duet that’s made
up almost entirely of silences, beautifully and tenderly observed.
Even the baby is outstanding.
