excellent picture of Buenos Aires in 1960

7/10

A man, Raul Rossi, is sent by God to fix up some problems in the Earth. Film is based in different short stories about love, couples, human attitude towards your workmates, etc. Psycology and mentality of such moment can be discovered reading under lines of dialogs. The movie is in black and white but you can learn a lot about places and dress of that moment of time. As the duration of each story is about 10 to 15 minutes the movie draw my attention. As in 1960s there was some kind of censorship and ingenuity in the Argentine Society this movie is influenced by this two things, although can not be classified in that way. On the contrary, the director tries to show controverted themes (such as divorce, which was approved in 1985) In my view there is some influence of nouvelle vague in this movie.

It is a very interesting movie. It depicts much of the life and values of Buenos Aires's high and middle high class at the end of the 1950s, which were a mix between the acceptance of progressive social changes during and after Peron's era (feminism, female vote, divorce, leftist claims, etc.) and some conservative attitudes (reinforced after the military coupe which ousted Perón). Also, it is in the midway between the "golden era of Argentine classic cinema" of the 40s and 50s (with a strong focus on romantic stories of high class divas) and the "new Argentine cinema of the 60s" (focusing in problems of "real-life people", including the poor and marginals).
