Set in Argentina, the superb Chilean actress Paulina Garcia stars here. Her performance in the film "Gloria" was most powerful several years back. In this movie she portrays Teresa, a woman who has just been let go from a decades long
job as a nanny/housekeeper for a couple who has run into economic hardship.
However, Teresa has a secured position in another Argentinian town and will travel by bus there. When the bus has to return to its depot due to a cracked windshield Teresa finds herself killing some time at a local street market. In the chaos of an impending storm, she will leave her purse in the camper of a traveling sales vendor containing her bus ticket and money.
Claudio Rissi ably co-stars as the vendor and the two of them hit the road to try and find the lost bag. Their rapport, on screen, works quite well despite their polar opposite personalities.
All in all, not everything works here with some confusing and probably unnecessary flashbacks and a so-so finale. But I remained engaged enough to want to know how this would all turn out.
