Time Out says

Set, like Sorin’s earlier ‘Historias Minimas’, against the epic dust plains and wide skies of Patagonia, this offbeat, bittersweet fable follows a weathered, laid-off garage worker as he offsets his fears of redundancy in the husbandry of a potential prize pure-breed dogo argentino, only to be confounded by the hound’s blithe refusal to provide lucrative stud services. The stark grandeur of the landscapes lends a sense of primal, sidelined grace and dignity to Villegas’ smalltime character (who shares a name with the actor playing him, part of the film’s low-key-realist project). Between the hound’s pointed political consciousness and Villegas’ persevering loyalty and abashed charm, the film is a quiet delight.

Loved it! What a wonderful film! I really wouldn't have thought you could make something out of such a simple story but you can. Coco's beautiful face and gentle resignation re.all that life throws at him is great to watch.Better face than most of the stars of Hollywood. The relationship between man and dog is never soppy or anthropomorphic but there is a developing trust and a respect from the man towards the dog. Lots of humour and no needless violence. Great,watch it!
