"Im Mittelpunkt von Aristarains hochsensibler, brillianter Beziehungsstudie steht ein charismatischer Literaturprofessor, der aus Spargründen Knall auf Fall zwangspensioniert und mit einer erbärmlichen Rente abgespeist wird. Das Ganze spielt im heutigen Buenos Aires - auch am anderen Ende der Welt ist die Geschichte von der Ameise und der Grille nur Lug und Trug." Neue Zürcher Zeitung



"Gute Nachrichten für das argentinische Kino: Nach drei Jahren des Schweigens kehrt sein klassischster Erzähler zurück und er tut dies in Höchstform." Horacio Bernades, Fipresci Argentina



"A la manière d'un Woody Allen, Aristarain réalise 'Lugares comunes' comme s'il écrivait son propre manuel de sagesse élémentaire, fruit de rencontres amicales ou amoureuses, de déceptions, d'expériences, d'engagements, de changements et d'une vision de la vie qui ne se prive ni d'humour, ni d'une ironie mordante; avec en toile de fond une Argentine en déroute: 'Comment peux-tu parler du futur, quand tu sais que le futur est une illusion, que c'est un piège inventé par le système pour obliger les gens à travailler, à produire comme des esclaves par peur de ce putain de futur?'" Cinénews Bruxelles
