All the houses that appear in the film are very close to each other in the same Buenos Aires neighborhood, Versalles. The main house (Elvira and Sergio's) became too old with the years. It was about to face demolition but the city's government decided to mark it as a cultural landmark and it was totally repaired. Now, it is a site of pilgrimage for thousands of fans who visit it all year round to take pictures and tour around the neighborhood. The house is inhabited by the same family who owned it at the time of the filming. They even have a female dog as pet named after one of the characters in the movie: "Matilde" (the young daughter of Elvira and Sergio). See more
