Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's a bit of a shaggy dog story, with threads that go nowhere, but nobody's in a hurry, and it's easy to go along for the ride."
‑ Jonathan F. Richards,
"From the director of Historias Minimas comes another wonderfully modest and gentle film, this time about a man, a dog, trust and libido."
‑ Simon Weaving, Screenwize
"Just so much mileage can be squeezed from repeated gestures, wavy two-lane roads, shots through spattered windshields, and faces so framed as to be cut off above the hairline."
‑ Donald J. Levit, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
"Lightly done but with a depth worthy of drama."
‑ Joe Utichi, FilmFocus
"[Juan Villegas'] vulnerability is so unforced that you can't help being touched."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"Sorin takes us off the beaten track, out of the cosmopolitan cities and into the rough, rural heart of Patagonia, lending authenticity to the fictional plot with his use of real locations and a non-professional cast."
‑ , Empire Magazine
"A bittersweet tale of dreams dashed and kindness rewarded in dog-eat-dog Patagonia."
‑ Anton Bitel, Movie Gazette
"Grabs the warm humanist baton from Sorin's Minimal Stories and heads straight for an existential finish line."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
"How do you say 'shaggy-dog story' in Spanish?"
‑ Jorge Morales, Village Voice
" optimistic road movie in the vast empty stretches of Patagonia, about a man and a dog. This is not so much acting skill as casting brilliance."
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"Though this slim but likeable tale is light on surprises, there's a terrific one in store when Bombon finally comes of age."
‑ Matthew Leyland,
