"A Great Clash with Reality"
13 January 2003 | by AlishynchaynesSee all my reviews

I´M a movie director myself and I only can say this is the kind of story I would like to shot someday. There´s no middle term, you love it or you hate it, but reality is always there. When I see "Okupas", I´m seeing that someone is talking of something that lived in own flesh, was on that places, connected with that kind of people, and mixed with a sense of fiction and caracthers construction ends up in a total identification; you´re no longer an espectator you just live and experience from inside. Some people saw "Okupas" as a show of crime, an allegory of dope using, and lower class habits and ways of life, and said that they prefered to watch the 8 o´clock news to see what´s wrong with the country. To others there´s nothing better to deeply know about it without discriminate and then start a social change and a work of unification for a most acceptable kind of living... If you liked "Okupas", I can also recommend you: "Pizza, Birra, Faso"

(Pizza, Beer, Cigarrettes- Stagnaro), "Tumberos" (Adrián Caetano), "Un

Oso Rojo" (A Red Bear, Caetano), and "El Bonaerense" (Pablo Trapero).
