Buenos Aires, March 1982. On the streets of the Argentinean capital, people are challenging the military dictatorship. The walls of the school are thick and redoubtable. A secure promise of the guaranteed preservation of the good old days of school routine from anything that may happen outside its walls in the neighbouring streets, in Buenos Aires itself, in the Argentina of 1982. María Teresa is a classroom assistant at that school, an innocent - or maybe just ignorant - mistress of ceremonies, a bystander. She is twenty years old. She started work when it was still summer and Mr. Biasutto, the chief classroom assistant, made quite clear to her at her first interview the sort of attitude she is expected to adopt with students because it would not be an easy task to arrive at what he called 'the optimum surveillance point': Always on the 'qui vive', never missing a thing, but never giving cause for alarm amongst the students.

Very interesting and special movie
2 January 2011 | by Mme_JanningsSee all my reviews

The camera in this movie is fantastic! The faces's expressions are very well worked. The sense of oppression is evident and the ambiguity of the main character is very marked. I liked when she laughs and I really liked when she sees the buttons, the leggings, the skirts always with this cold but intense eye at the same time. I have to say that the actress surprised me greatly and that I have to congratulate Nunez's performance, because this movie is directed with a great critical eye, and as if we were inside the movie. The same story could happen to any place in Spain during my childhood. In fact, I felt quite impressed by many memories it brought up from my own childhood in a state school during the times of Franco.
