Argentina's favorite flavor déclassé fairy tale
4 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Argentina's favorite theme is presented here: Déclassé Fairytale. With emphasis on that golden prewar era.

In this rendition an 80 year old man who himself would have been a child in that golden era is dying he is looking forward to the visit of his son an international pianist (of course). The 80 year old father is an author with signed first editions of Borges (of course).

The whole story is a day in his life.

Still it is an accurate look at rural life in Argentina as well as death and dying even if it does involve an estancia and other icons of these pseudo intellectual déclassé fairy tales.

It is short pretty good if somewhat depressing.
