阿根廷新浪潮电影大师托雷尼尔逊最好的作品之一，1961年嘎纳国际电影节费比西奖，60年代最重要的阿根廷新电影之一，喜欢Jean Cocteau或者Georges Franju的应该会同样喜欢这部影片吧。
Leopoldo Torre Nilsson was probably the best film director in Argentina. He was a man with a vision. He was the o...展开ne that elevated the local cinema and put it on the map in the late 50s and early 60s. He almost always worked on screen plays based on his wife, Beatriz Guido's novels, as is the case here.
This gothic tale of hidden monsters and well kept secrets among the provincial bourgeoisie had more impact for me the first time I watched it. On second viewing what seemed so eerie before doesn't hold true any more.
The husband-and-wife team of Beatriz Guido and Leopoldo Torre-Nilsson once again write and direct, respectively, to create another drama about the lives of an upper middle-class segment of society. In this engaging story, a young woman, Laura (Elsa Daniel), comes back from boarding school to a home that has seen wealthy days but is now barely managing. She discovers that an aunt has locked herself up in the attic to spend the rest of her life mourning the loss of her one great love, a loss that occurred when the man jilted her on their wedding day. Laura decides to hunt the man down and bring him to meet her aunt, just to save the woman from herself. She succeeds in tracking him, and convinces him to visit her aunt, while she herself is very much taken with his charm and stunningly handsome looks. The entire scenario shifts after Laura's original objective is reached.
