Getting rid of a father has been a Freudian dream but it may become a nightmare. This singular story shot in Argentina by French director Pierre Chenal is a superb melodrama. There are some scenes to point out as remarkable and one in particular: the son's horror when he understands his father is being ed according to what he and his sister had planned. There is another enigmatic daughter of the ed man. And she is not as as she looks. To top it all, the mother of this singular family decides to burn her mouth to remain silent for ever. This film was projected in the Nantes Festival in 1995 and has been rediscovered by film buffs. As everybody knows, Chenal would film "Native Son" in Argentina at the beginning of the 50's. abel posadas
