A young's boy story attached to an elder woman and the passion she provokes on him.
23 April 2006 | by safonagSee all my reviews

A film that keeps intact its mysterious glamor. Mecha Ortiz playing the main character established as the "femme fatal" symbol. Carlos Hugo Christensen directed this film using different symbols such as the cobweb to represent the man trapped and swallowed by the woman. Christensen gave to the photography of this picture a curious combination of lights and shades. He filmed a splendid masks ball, interiors in an expressionism style, the use of the sloping camera, a magic environment and the locations in Mendoza (province of Argentina)of a great lightness.The musical score by George Andreani is represented by a slow, melancholic and disturbing waltz. A good adaptation of Daudet's novel. . .
