One of the best Argentinian films (Oscar nominated)
25 December 1998 | by See all my reviews

Hector Alterio brings to life Mario Beneditti's novel of the same name. Alterio is a tired and widowed office man, whose life seems to have been wasted and whose age begins to threaten him. He seeks some peace, while he reflects on his past to try to come to terms with it and with his children who are now adults, but still living with him due to economic hardships. The cast includes some of Argentina's best actors (coming from what it's called the Independent theatre movement of the '60s). The movie is not only the story of a man, but a comment on today's office work, with its routine, long hours, jealousy, jokes, romances, etc. The movie could be called an ironic romantic drama.
