Storyline

Nazareno Cruz is the seventh son of a couple living in a high mountain village. According to a myth, a seventh son will become a wolf on nights of the full moon. Everyone in the village is relieved when this doesn't happen. The boy grows up and falls in love with a beautiful girl, Griselda. When he's 20 years old, he is visited by the Devil, who offers him the wealth of the world if he will turn his back on his love for Griselda, and if he fails to do this, he will become a wolf.

An operistic werewolf tale
6 June 2000 | by (Buenos Aires) – See all my reviews

Leonardo Favio adapted a radio soap opera story about an amazing operistic style. Everything is extreme, the lighting, the art direction, the sound recording recreates a dream environment crowded of fine characters. Nora Cullen, in a masterwork, performs an old witch who tries to protect the newborn werewolf. This movie became one of the most succesfull in Argentine filmmaking
