Films about the "desaparecidos" - the thousands who disappeared during the Argentine military government have become a major sub group of the country's national cinema history. Many of them have been good. One of the first ones won the 1985 Foreign Film Oscar.
This film, however, is among the most boring and unwatchable of the group, if not THE most to date. Even an impressive cast, the screen writer (known for her TV work) and director could not make a decent "desaparecidos" movie. Forget the fact that the genre has become overworked and tiresome, this flick is simply a yawner.
It is no accident that this film was ripped apart, if not dismissed and unnoticed, by Argentine critics and moviegoers. I just saw it on Latin HBO by chance, unaware of its reviews or box office failure. I only found out above these facts through links on this site, by the way.
I knew I couldn't be alone, if I was unable to view this film in its entirety, on a rainy afternoon, on the 3rd day in a row of rain while on a beach vacation. I rarely dismiss a film totally, and make very negative comments about it. This one deserves them. Skip it.
A vital element of El-Comâ€™s process is the implementation of Environmental Stress Screening (ESS). This type of testing uses automated equipment to simulate the harsh real-world conditions that our products may face every day. It is through testing that we perfect product designs, identify production improvements, and maintain quality standards across our product lines. In addition, by simulating the environmental conditions that our products will endure, we identify any potential flaws in either the design or workmanship in a controlled lab environment.
The ESS testing is performed by certified technicians in our facility in Garden Grove, CA. We also have certified partner facilities at our disposal, which help augment our internal capability and resources to provide the best economical and effective solution for our products and customers.
- Our facilities have test areas to help assess the following:
- Extended Temperature
- Halt & Hass
- Prolonged Vibration
- Long-Term Reliability Testing
Our products also undergo prolonged testing during fully automatic installation (FAI), during the production phase (either at an acceptable quality level [AQL] level or 100% depending on program requirements), and during the return and service process.
