Kilómetro 111 is a surprising ﬁlm, given the time at which it was made. On watching it today, more than 70 years on, we have the feeling that this ﬁlm hasn’t aged and, on the contrary, remains extremely modern. It displays great cinematic intelligence, in spite of the moral that emerges from it. With its sober language and superb performances, the ﬁlm describes a pathetic, tragi-comic, ill-fated and topical reality, along with a struggle lost before it begins. In my opinion, Kilómetro 111 is a landmark in Argentinian cinema.
