BUENOS AIRES — “Historias minimas” (Minimal Stories), a chronicle of three people’s journeys of self-fulfillment, dominated the Argentine Assn. of Film Journalists awards, which unfolded Monday in Buenos Aires.
Directed by Carlos Sorin, the pic took eight Condors de Plata, including film, director and screenplay.
“Herencia,” the story of two immigrants in Argentina, took actress for Rita Cortese, supporting for Juliet Diaz and freshman film for director Paula Hernandez.
Julio Chavez picked up actor honors for his role in Adrian Caetano’s “Un oso rojo” (Red Bear), scant winnings from 12 noms for the life-after-prison drama. Enrique Liporace won supporting for Caetano’s immigrant drama “Bolivia.”
Pablo Trapero’s “El Bonarense” fetched only two awards despite 10 nominations, while two pics hot at the box office last year — Adolfo Aristarain’s “Lugares communes” (Common Places) and Marcelo Pineyros’ “Kamchatka” — went away empty-handed despite seven and five noms, respectively.
