"The names have been changed to protect the guilty in this crime thriller that is based on the exploits of Argentine mafiosi in the '20s and '30s. Francesco Donato (Jose Slavin) is the current godfather of the Argentine mafia, but his assistant Luciano (Alfredo Alcon) wants his job. He believes he knows ways to expand their business beyond prostitution and protection rackets. His kidnap and murder of a prominent millionaire gives the mob really bad press. Indeed, the resulting public furor results in the police cracking down hard on all gangster activities, which is not good for Luciano's longevity."--Clarke Fountain, All Movie Guide

Los gauchos judíos by Juan José Jusid( Visual )

2 editions published in 2007 in Spanish and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is not widely known that Argentina, which is thought to have harbored many ex-Nazis (such as Josef Mengele), is also the home of a large and well-established population of Jews who fled the pogroms of Russia near the turn of the [20th] century and settled in the Argentine countryside. This film tells the story of those early settlers, many of them new to farm work and all of them new to the horse-riding traditions of the region's cowboys (gauchos). Based on the book by Alberto Gerchunoff who was one of these immigrants."

"Ein alter Spanier, der einem langweiligen, von seiner dominanten Tochter strukturierten Lebensabend entgegensieht, findet in seiner argentinischen Nachbarin eine temperament- und fantasievolle neue Gefährtin, die sein Leben durcheinander wirbelt. Schwungvolle, von den Darstellern mitreißend gestaltete Senioren-Komödie, die mal sentimental, mal auch etwas zu harmlos daherkommt, stets aber reizvoll vom Kontrast der beiden Hauptfiguren zehrt."
