A sly smile Christian Slater. He dissolute Mr. McKinley, acting in strict coordination with the state Department offers a very very tempting deal. Everything is counted here, even noble speech about necessary to take into account the national interests of Argentina accepted without any bills. Well and bargaining it is ready. Only here, our hero — the President of Argentina need to hide their true intentions from your friends and loved ones, knowing that hoping they will fight until the end. In a battle that has already in advance lost.

And in the same same time a grown woman from the intensity of perceived stress loses the gift of speech. The meeting, a tactic which is starting to give results denied even in the second session. Because, that says that our woman and then. what she says — not with her father. And before us in each of cases under hardly not the most powerful in Argentina people. But we see it is not easy.

What can you do it continues to live with its heavy moral baggage, offering us the portrait of the Argentine Fran underwood.

In the proposed scenario, the creators of the film cool lost. If this film about a lying politics, authoritarian father and generally of a man struggling with his conscience, then this story just does not Nova. And in this capacity, she is not interesting. Who needs another one corrupt, destroys his family? And no Ricardo Darin here position is not will save, no matter how the symbol of the Argentinean cinema, he was.

Well, if our court render a political issue, where should show the extent of US influence on its South American neighbors and cynical tools behind the scenes, something in this respect the film does not surprising. In fact, the whole proposed intrigue worthy of a small article in the political column business publications. It is not "Trickery" Barry Levinson and not historical and political paintings by Oliver stone. And after all, it is assumed that the viewer must get involved in this game in chess.

Therefore, there as say — plays the tape. All hit pass by. Although at this made the film quite skillfully, dynamic, and casting deserves respect. Like all great but not above

Itself a "Summit" — this is not a unique occasion to get acquainted with Argentine cinema. Agree that movies this South American country fall into a car very very rare (offhand remember is that a kind of "Antenna"), and "the Summit" as time offers that chance. To the same this painting was in the number of nominees for the festival in Cannes tried your hand at the Goya award, which is the Spanish equivalent of "Oscar". You can also meet the Director and screenwriter Santiago mitre, a well-known myself home. And the main role in"the Summit" performed by Ricardo Darin, one of the most popular Argentine actors. Yes  & Dolores Fonzi (ex-wife of Gael Garcia Bernal) with Erica Rivas not the last people.

"The summit" in the genre is a fusion of the political and family drama. The main character — the President of Argentina, hernán Blanco (Darin), who arrived with his entourage in Chile representatives of Latin and South America discusses the very difficult question of the development of mineral resources. In the same time hernán Blanco there is a crisis of family relations with his daughter, though they were no sugar. According to the aggregate voltage in mind political intrigue and conflict daughter superimposed on the General mood and health of the Argentine President. But here for the horizon appears sleek, arrogant toff disgusting sugary smile, forcing to take the decision of hernán Blanco in favor of the United States. The hernán Blanco have a very difficult with all sides of the week...

In fact, Summit is moving in a fairly academic style and even serious dramatic scene is designed in the dry style and emotion to them gives only acting. Apparently, Santiago mitre have chosen this course, because the viewer is accustomed to seeing politicians restrained, cool, fit with a balanced, clear reports (Vladimir Zhirinovsky is an exception to the rules). Thus, we observed for developing parallel storylines linked only by the character from Ricardo Darin. Gradually you can feel the heaviness of the film that draws you in the melancholy world of the main character. At this in the atmosphere there is not only tremendous nervous tension hernán Blanco, but and so very tired. And it also kind of ask the question: do not laugh President of the mind, because his dialogues, the daughter of the past, raises many questions.

If you talk about actors, have to repeat that they made the lion's share of what  the Summit is generally noticed by the critics. In the first place it applies, of course, Ricardo Darin. He is confidently portrayed the crafty politician, able to hide their emotions and true purpose, so that much facial or gestural games Darina in the embodiment of the image quickly. But is only first glance, because if you look in his eyes, then again you can read the emotional squall that overtook his character. As already said the main characters are the forces of tension, fatigue, responsibility and love daughter. A good typical game. But still, when all the merits before the "Summit" Darina, more impressed by the expressive performance of Dolores Fonzi, who played the daughter of hernán Blanco. She even a spark of a nervous breakdown played on a single emotional impulse. Memorable and cold-blooded, deliberate game Erica Rivas. And, if anyone is interested, then perseverations forces embodied Christian Slater, once famous actor of great talent, but ruined it and bad habits.

And the result reviews film "the Summit" is possible again focus on that is a representative of Argentine cinema, an infrequent guest in our domestic box office. Suddenly someone will be curious about the product so exotic in the cinematic sense of the country. And thus it is possible to get acquainted with her iconic actors — Ricardo and could be saved completely '  Dolores Fonzi. But still some event "the Summit" it is unlikely that will be so:

PS: And for some unknown reason in our film so called, replacing the original "Cordillera", which put geographical pride and metaphorical symbolism.
