Storyline

In the 70's, eighteen year-old Maria Fabiani lives with her French mother Diane in an old house in Buenos Aires, subletting rooms and giving classes to illiterate adults in the slums. One of the tenants, Felix, has a non-corresponded crush on Maria. When the teenager is abducted in her house by the Argentinean army accused of subversion, her mother seeks her out in the 23rd Precinct where one of the military without uniform tells her that they are heading with Maria. While Diane desperately tries to find information about her daughter, Maria is submitted to torture in the hideous underground of the Garage Olimpo. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Panic attack
25 February 2004 | by garageolympoSee all my reviews

My friend who is a psychiatrist working with torture survivors had experienced his first panic attack while watching this movie.

I did not. But I use the nick "garageolympo" since I saw the film.

The film explains what to expect from military regimes, blood, misery, lies and death.

I recommend who love this movie: Noche de los lápices, La (1986) (night of pencils) and may be "missing" and "Z" by Costa Gavras.

I live in a country in which people experience torture and pressure, So I liked this film to tell our anonymous story.
