Gian Franco Pagliaro,
The House of the Angel focuses on the ruling class in 1920s Argentina, a deeply repressive society where political arguments were often settled by duels, and young women were expected to be totally ignorant of sex.
Favio produces a master class about how to tell a story with very few resources, in an almost minimalist style, been at the same time powerful and touching. The movie has a very common plot, but Favio gives it a twist by locating it into a local context very well reproduced: an Argentine small country town.
