Luca Puenzo's second effort is original, taunt and full of passion. Artfully crafted and wonderfully acted, El Nino Pez deserves a lot more attention than it's getting.

A dark, erotically charged tale of adolescent obsession involving a young woman and her live-in maid. The emotions were raw and unfiltered, and only towards the end did the script begin to test ones incredulity. Until then, the film took us ever deeper into the psychology of a young girl's first love and her attempts at dealing with jealousy when others find the maid, La Guayi, attractive. This is the second film this viewer has seen by this talented Argentinian director, and both have starred the same young actor, Ins Efron. Lucia Puenzo has revealed herself as a skillful director, able to evoke complex layers from what could have been a simple story of love, betrayal, and tragedy.
