Movie tip: Un Cuento Chino Posted by Adir on Dec 30, 2011 in Spanish Culture, Videos
Hey, what’s up?
I took some days off during Christmas and New Years and I ended up watching an Argentinean movie, Un Cuento Chino (A Chinese Tale).
Un Cuento Chino tells the story of Roberto, owner of a hardware store, and a Chinese man called Jun. Roberto was sitting at a park when Jun is kicked out of a taxi and asks Roberto for help. Jun doesn’t speak a word of Spanish.
Jun is looking for his tapo (his father’s oldest brother), who is his only family member still alive. Roberto takes him in and helps Jun to look for his uncle. In the meantime, we find out that Roberto is grouchy, has strict living methods and doesn’t own a computer.
I won’t say any more so as not to spoil your fun, but I assure you it’s a very interesting movie. Below you will see the movie trailer (beware! Explicit language in Spanish).
