Editors Note
Note An aging matriarch (Graciana Chironi) assembles her children and grandchildren for a hilariously uncomfortable road trip in this low-key Argentinean comedy.
New York Times "[A] big-hearted ensemble comedy....This is how most people live, getting along as best they can within the confines of the only institution that really matters." 09/08/2006 p.E12

Review If there were a competition for unfussy ways to get your characters where you need them to tell your story then Familia Rodante would surely be up for at least a nomination...Splendidly edited and scored, the film certainly has its moments, my favourite being the genuinely funny shot of the van being pushed forward by family members, followed eventually by the loudly supervising figure of Grandmother Emilia. As a slice of modern Argentinean life it's of genuine interest, not least in the scene that quietly hints at the everyday nature of police bribery, but Familia Rodante proved, for me at least, a largely affable rather than engaging experience, and I perhaps too frequently felt as if I was watching background action for a story that was taking place elsewhere.

Review Familia Rodante is a road-movie with a difference - the conventions are all upheld with an incident packed journey and an appropriate soundtrack that captures the rhythms of the journey and the nature of the environment, but the film doesn't wrap it all up conventionally with a neat little lesson-learnt in the sense of it being a metaphorical as well as a literal journey. There is no sense that the family are any more or less close than they were at the start of the film, but along the way and through the way that they face up to each of the ordeals they go through, we get to understand the bonds that hold them and all families together. With a particularly fine sense of direction, mood and humour, completely in touch with the rhythms of the Argentinean people and country, Trapero makes this both an amusing and a thoughtful little trip.
