Even if Raymundo Gleyzer's movies are not the ones a movie lover would first quote, even if he was a Marxist filmmaker, even if the days of the Argentinean dictature seem a little bit distant for most of us, take a look at this film. Cinema is not always safe, cinema is not always about Orson Welles or the last blockbuster produced by Hollywood. Cinema may also be a fatal passion. Masterpiece.
