La acacias

Argentinian Road movie depicting an encounter between a long-distance truck driver and the woman and child he takes as passengers. Won the Caméra d’Or for Best First Film at Cannes this year.

"Rubén is a truck driver transporting lumber between Asuncion del Paraguay and Buenos Aires. He has agreed to take a passenger, Jacinta, who arrives burdened with bags and a cute, wide-eyed, chubby cheeked five-month-old baby, Anahí, who steals the audience’s heart in much the same way as she charms Rubén. Small acts of kindness and stolen glances gradually ease the initial discomfort between a weary Rubén and a wary Jacinta, creating the possibility of a bond that the audience becomes complicit in encouraging to grow."
