During a sojourn in the Argentinean countryside a young go-getter fascinated with the colonial era and his timid pal stop off in a sleepy provincial town to get their car fixed and wind up taking over a dilapidated luxury hotel whose eccentric owner has died mysteriously. The clash of cultures in this 2001 feature offers ample opportunity for satire, but directors Rodrigo Moreno, Ulises Rosell, and Andres Tambornino get lost in a meandering plot that involves a local bigwig trying to keep the hotel's past a secret. Though picturesque and fitfully funny, the film never finds the right tone—not surprising given its trio of directors. In Spanish with subtitles. 93 min.
