A woman who has been traumatized by her brother's accidental death from electrocution in the subways of Buenos Aires learns to readjust.
This well-acted psychological drama was wildly popular in its native Argentina...展开, in part because it was based on the best-selling novel Heroina by Emilio Rodrigue. With a dispassionate, measured tone, it tells the story of a well-to-do girl, Penny (Graciela Borges), who seeks psychiatric help after making a suicide attempt. She has made attempts to socialize with working-class people rather than her own peer-group but is unable to break through to them. Perhaps it is her own emotional stiffness. Things become much more lively for her once she gets to the analyst's couch. ~ Clarke Fountain, All Movie Guide
