Olmedo was a visionary
17 April 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Impossible not to recognise much of the idionsincrasy of the Argentinian people in Olmedo's characthers, in addition I would say he was one of the few who actually foresaw one of the darkest periods in the recent socio-economical history of Argentina. Among "Esperando La Carroza", "La clinica del Dr. Cureta" and others of this genre, El Manosanta is a must see.

I do also believe that people tend to think Olmedo was only a public clown but his sense of humour and accuracy to represent the Argentinians to cinema was an ability shared by a very very few number of people. In that sense, I also think the posterity has misregarded him as a valid exponent of what it should have been more than a laugh about themselves.
