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.

Remake of a classic?
31 March 2007 | by ano_nimassSee all my reviews

I absolutely loved this movie.

Satyajit Ray's Jalsaghar tackled a similar theme.

Jalsaghar (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0051792/)

Also, could this Chilean version be a remake of a 1976 Mexican classic also called Coronacion?

Coronacion (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0072823/)

The movie invokes the crumbling of colonial values and ethos so poignantly.

However, is the next generation (of the maid and her paramour) any better than the fading one of the landlord?

The acting is really deep and well performed.

Also cinematography and lighting for such themes which is always a challenge, are done very well.

The movie really makes you think of what will happen to any family at the top of the game, if a tradition is not put in place to preserve the values and vitality.
