Mad World
8 August 2006 | by (Polotrov, Russia) – See all my reviews

*PLOT AND ANALYSIS GIVEN*

This intriguing film, which was written by the great Argentine writer, Roberto Arlt, who is unknown in most parts of the world, is a splendid feast for those interested in politics and literature. The film is rather subdued and there is an ironic tone in all of the scenes, because the main character is a weak man who can not stand up for himself. He invariably is led towards meaning by an astrologer, who is a pseudo-revolutionary who wants to destroy the government merely because he himself is an incorrigible. In the way, we meet many of Arlt's characters, whom he saw in the Buenos Aires of his day, which was the 1920's, there are whores, pimps, murderers and mean spirited capitalists who all have very little values or idealism.

Erosadain is a man beset by failure and when the plot calls for action, he is only too willing to comply. He is left by his wife and even the whores find him peculiar. The film is very well done, with just some complaints here and there, like the contrived attack on the astrologer's life by his own henchmen and the shooting which takes place, it seemed too staged and simulated. The seven madmen is a metaphor for the seven deadly sins and they are each represented by men who are part of the revolutionary circle.
