一个关于存在主义的阿根廷故事。During the economic hard times that took place in Argentina in the mid-1970s, highly trained professionals left the country in huge numbers in order to find work. In this story, Alejandro (Alfredo Alcon)...展开is an architect who cannot get work, either because he does not have the right ideological credentials, or because it is simply not there. In fact, he would do anything someone would pay him to do, including digging ditches. Despite this, he refuses to leave his beloved homeland.
Since the late 1950s a new generation of film directors succeeded in joining the technical ability with the esthetic refinement, that finally took Argentine films to international film festivals. Of the first new wave of such directors we can name Leopoldo Torre-Nilsson, Fernando Ayala, David Jose Kohon, Simon Feldman and Fernando Solanas. A second generation that achieved a cinematographic style to mention were José Martínez Suárez, Manuel Antin, and Leopoldo Favio.
