When everything is said and done about the Argentinean movies of the thirties, this half forgotten gem deserves our attention. It is not only for oldies but for researches and all those interested in Latin American cinema. It explains something about Buenos Aires and its low class towards the end of the thirties and let you know why this city was in the past the lighthouse of Latin America. There's a splendid script by playwright Samuel Eichelbaum and quite a good direction by Moglia Barth. Beyond the not so good performances you will discover the story of a woman who gets back to the house where she was born in one of the modest areas of Buenos Aires. Again it is possible to see that getting back is no good at all. Studios were not keen on showing poverty and lust. But this movie proves what Argentinean cinema could do with first rate technicians. How was life like for this low middle class back in the thirties? Watch and see. abel posadas
