An excellent and unfairly forgotten movie
1 January 2007 | by eddielawrence2003See all my reviews

"El Crimen de Oribe" (The Crime of Oribe) is one of the best movies of the so-called Golden Era (the 40s) of the Argentine cinema. It was very well directed by one of the best Argentine directors ever, Leopoldo Torres Rios who allowed his son, Leopoldo Torre Nilsson to co-direct the film along him. Based in a short story (not a novel) by Adolfo Bioy Casares, "El perjurio de la nieve" (The perjury of the snow), the film is a wonderful -and very dramatic and romantic- predecessor of the literary current later known as "Magic Realism". Very well photographed in black and white, it had very good actors like Roberto Escalada and Carlos Thompson and a very impressive performance by Raul de Lange (not a professional actor but a musicologist and composer). Even a mediocre actress, Maria Concepcion Cesar, looked and worked very satisfactorily. It was one of Torres Ríos' sweetest and most beautiful films.
