"With this film I returned to the world of Tres tristes tigres, to some people, in this case writers, who live in their own reality and believe that it is, in fact, Chile." - Raul Ruiz
A group of young writers sell ...展开their soul to the devil. It is a film about the meaning of isolation and a certain megalomania that developed in Chile during the government of Eduardo Frei. The version RAI originally broadcast [black and white, 45 minutes shorter and until now the only one in circulation] was made by cutting everything out that makes allusion to the political context and makes the characters real. The story was not the most important thing: the most important thing was the speeches that were around the story, which is one of the themes of modern cinema.
