study of character
12 June 2002 | by (Buenos Aires, Argentina) – See all my reviews

Far from the bergmanesque style who gave him the reputation as one of the top ten directors of the world cinema during the sixties, this fine adaptation of Manuel Puig's serial remains as the best picture in the filmography of the last Torre Nilsson, and a superb study of women's psychology. This Peyton Place ala Argentinean way includes simulation, dissatisfaction, hypocrisy, sexual repression, pride and prejudice, macho complex and social hierarchies. Set on a small town at the pampas during the thirties and forties, the cast includes such a good performances like Alfredo Alcon, Luisina Brando, Leonor Manso, Raul Lavie and the legendary Mecha Ortiz in a small part (the gipsy). In the pivotal role of Nene, Marta Gonzalez is a miscast. Nice score.
