This film, a modernized Argentine version of Henrik Ibsen's famous play " A Doll's House" is remembered fondly by those who saw it,but is certainly not what its author had in mind. The story is framed by the return to the city by the Nora character (well played by Delia Garces),who remembers the story in flashback as she rides through town in a taxi (this is not the late 1800's,but the 1940's). We are then treated to a reasonably well done, faithful, Spanish-language version of "A Doll's House", but as soon as the flashback ends, there comes a whopper of an ending which demolishes Ibsen's famous conclusion and apparently demonstrates that the film makers (and apparently, film audiences of the time) were more interested in celebrating happy family reconciliations than emancipated women.
