One Hundred Years of Forgiveness

Two families struggling to survive in a dying railroad town almost destroy each other in this 2000 Argentinean drama by Jose Glusman. Faced with an ailing and manipulative mother, a lonely Jewish shopkeeper (Glusman) duns a poor family for payment of a debt, but instead the family's son (a ferocious Pompeyo Audivert) takes him hostage. Glusman emphasizes the family's squalid home life (with physical violence and hints of incest), and there's an undertone of anti-Semitism in their resentment of the shopkeeper. Unfortunately the relationships aren't developed enough to sustain real tension, leaving only a barrage of unpleasant scenes. 89 min.
