The elderly heir of a formerly wealthy and respected Chilean family, Andres, suffers from decadence and solitude. He hires young Estela in order to look after his tiranic and almost crazy grandmother. The differences in class and age don't stop Andres from courting Estela, whose fiancé Mario tries to make some money with the passions of his well-off rival. The suffocating atmosphere of the run-down mansion in the outskirts of Santiago represents the deterioration of the bourgeoisie, and sets the scene for the total collapse of Andres.

Excellent adaptation of José Donoso's Novel
22 September 2000 | by roman-15See all my reviews

José Donoso is a brooding and dark author. His novels all have an almost Gothic atmosphere. When I first heard of this film, I thought that it would be a difficult task indeed to properly convey these dark, decadent and special feelings. However Silvio Caiozzi's masterful adaptation give an almost perfect tribute to a wonderful book.

This is not only done by excellent direction, but also by wonderful and very even performances of all the cast.

Caiozzi has mantained the argument and spirit of this book written in the 50's, even though he's adapted it to an atmosphere of the 90's.

It's a film to be seen several times, because it's filled with minute details that are relevant to the story, as social criticism and also as to the atmosphere that is an intrinsic part of the film.

By some standards it might be considered a "slow" film, it is, however a great piece of film making.

Silvio Caiozzi has not directed many films (Julio Comienza en Julio, La Luna en El Espejo, Fernando ha Vuelto and now Coronación), but each of them are great examples of his intellect and craft.
