Description Technical Specs
Winner of 39 international awards and the most honored film in Chilean history, Silvio Caiozzi's drama is a beautifully photographed and haunting tale of obsession and repressed desire set against the backdrop of a decaying mansion in Santiago. Glum, middle-aged bachelor Don Andres hires Estela, a 17-year old country girl, to care for his wealthy and abusive grandmother. As time passes, he grows increasingly obsessed with her, blinding himself to the threats around him and to his own mental breakdown. Based on a novel by Jose Donoso. In Spanish with English subtitles.
