Castro underplays Isadora’s disorientation, retreating into herself. Her slack-featured face almost expressionless, she conveys Isadora’s bewilderment and fascination, her incipient senility less malady than head-trip. Sieveking and Saavedra fashion an awkward camaraderie between Enrique and Hugo, an ideal balance to the heavyweights they’re meant to protect. And by resisting histrionics, Celedón modulates Rosario’s resentment and greed to reveal the underlying pain.
