Julio De Grazia
One of the last masters of argentine movie making.
Only the experience of knowing Lautaro Murua allows you to understand his unique quality of directing both film and actors in a very special manner. When he gave film clases he would really surprise the classroom by obtaining direction and acting results with the students. In La Raulito the results obtained by the actress Marilina Ross must be rated between the best in her carrer. Murua had more chances to act that to direct but nevertheless his performances are equally as good as most of his films. In 1987, he was very pleased to act in the feature De que estamos hechos by Leonardo Polverino, but lamentably after a couple of months, his timetable in theatre at night didn´t allow him to work in this feature film, which was mainly shot at nightime. One would think that a first class actor like Murua did´nt accept small budget productions but he leaves us many pleasant surprises, like a roll in Los traidores, directed by Raymundo Gleyzer.
