LOS TALLOS AMARGOS
DIRECTOR: FERNANDO AYALA
CAST: CARLOS CORES, AíDA LUZ, JULIA SANDOVAL
In the 1940s and 50s the Argentine film industry was as technically sophisticated as any in the Americas, and Ayala’s noir, a headlong plunge into the troubled conscience and warped psyche of a journalist haunted by the memory of committing murder, is a preeminent example of the national cinematographic genius at work, stunningly shot by Ricardo Younis, an apprentice of Gregg Toland.
