A key element o Argentinean culture
25 December 2010 | by (Dnipro, Ukraine) – See all my reviews

This movie is considered to be one of the best in Argentinean cinema. And for reasons. The only problem is in that it's hard to be valued properly if watching outside of the historical context. Otherwise, you risk to find yourself under the wig of military censors (the movie saw the light at the pinnacle of the last dictatorship), who never were able to understand what the film was about. And fortunately, did not forbid it. Although, the hints at dreadful times when the movie was made, are supposed to be noticed by a blind, with the horrible last film's frame not only destroying watchers, but also being a loud and clear slap in junta's face.

Artistically it's impeccable. Aristarain is considered to be a master of making interesting stories out of boring topics. This time it's a thriller born out of neglecting the safety rules in a copper pit. The music of wonderful Emilio Cauderer makes the movie sound hitchcockishly suspensive. Leaves no doubts as to the necessity to watch all Aristarain's works.
