Synopsis:
A charming and affecting tale charting the fortunes of three small town heroes pursuing their dreams, Carlos Sorin's Historias Minimas offers further evidence of the current riches to be found in Argentine cinema. Awarded a special jury prize at the San Sebastian International Film Festival, it's a deceptively simple, yet delightful road movie concerned with three disparate characters heading for the Argentine city of San Julian amid the beautiful landscapes of Patagonia. Roberto is a travelling salesman hoping to impress a young widow by surprising her child with a birthday cake.
Don Justo is an old man with poor vision who sits in front of his son's grocery store and entertains passing children by wiggling his ears. Maria is a shy mother who has won an apperance on TV gameshow 'Multicoloured Casino'.

Understated, life-affirming joy to watch - Minimal Stories review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

This gentle and meandering film captures a country where the distances are great, the climate fearsome, and the folks all very pleasant and companionable. The story follows three tales of disparate people heading to the same town. all provide heart-warming, life affirming smiles for the viewer, along with stunning cinematography.

An example of perhaps the finest acting by a canine you will ever get the chance to see.

And a lovely film altogether.

Essential viewing for the sensitive soul - Minimal Stories review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
22/10/2010

I adored this film. Although not gripping and with a snail paced plot line, the characters are well portrayed and I personally felt every emotion along with them. I want to adopt Don Justo! If you're a fan of Bonbon (also directed by Sorin) then I definately recommend this.

- also I actually agree with the review above...the dog made it's scene feel very real and ultimately more touching!
