The final opus of one of the great Argentinian film-makers
2 March 2008 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

Looking to this last film of one of the greater Argentine film-makers, not discussed father of the Argentinean New Wave, you can introduce yourself in many of the clues, not only of this country's cinema, but in the ideas and cultural biases of the Buenos Aires intellectuals at the sixties and seventies. Torre Nilsson puts together in this film several of the many profound issues he explores in his filmography. Firstly, there is a new picture of one of his preferred subjects, i.e., the ruling classes of his country, mainly based on landownership. Secondly, he explores sexuality on a fine manner, linking it with death and charm in a non-bizarre way. Finally, the ambiguous realism that links Torre Nilsson to Fellini blows up in the strange end of the film.
