It is undoubtedly one of the films that achieved the greatest impact in Argentina in 2022, outside the traditional fences of Hollywood. The Amazon production was released on September 29 in selected cinemas in the country, but quickly became the most watched, despite the fact that the major chains decided not to put it on their posters, due to the differences in criteria with the technological giant.

From the release date in cinemas to the arrival on streaming, about three weeks passed in this way, a time that the big cinema chains considered not enough and, as a form of protest, they decided not to show it. This did not prevent the film from being the most watched, and, in addition, in this way, it benefited the independent theaters that did not see such a high number of spectators in a long time.
