Winning might not be an odyssey

“The Odyssey of the Giles” brings together Darín and Brandoni with a great cast. Borenzstein and Sacheri. On a product you can win San Sebastian.


“The Odyssey of the  Giles ” was the Argentinian chosen to compete in the famous San Sebastián film festival  .

The film is based on the novel “La noche de la usina” by renowned  Eduardo Sacheri . Who is the co-screenwriter of Sebastián Borenzstein. And screenwriter for “ The Secret of Your Eyes ”.  Oscar winner. Borenzstein, in turn, is the director of this magnificent work. And from “A Chinese Tale.” Also performed by  Ricardo Darín .

In quality  national cinema  , these are not coincidences. Great talents make great products. In “The Odyssey...“, Darín is accompanied by another cast of local monsters. Like  Brandoni , Daniel Aráoz, Veronica Llinás, Carlos Belloso. And even for his own son, “El Chino”, who has already shown his solidity.

The script

“The odyssey...“is a very effective script, about a group of  entrepreneurs  who in 2001 are scammed by a lawyer and a manager of a  bank . They're  townspeople . Working. That, in no way, they're going to let their  dream be robbed . It's a story about revenge on its own hand. That's wrong. But in this case, he puts us on his side.

The film was released in 400 rooms. Something huge in these times, for a national product. But it's good. Let us hope that abroad it will be well understood what was " the playpen “, which was fundamental to its success. So that it has the impact it has on our market. At the box office and at prizes. If it is understood as we understand it, there would be no odyssey that won many international awards. Because it is a solid product. A very well made tragicomedy. In our image and likeness.

“The odyssey...“is the big bet of local cinema in 2019 that is beginning to come to an end. A nice brooch for a complicated year. That brings us a smile in the meantime.
