Hitchcock in South America. Laura wins a vacation on the radio and arrives at a large hotel in Ostende, on the Atlantic, not far from Buenos Aires. Against the gloomy backdrop of the ocean at low season, between calls to her boyfriend Paco and chats with the waiter, Laura notices an elderly man with two young women, and can’t ignore their comings and goings in the room across the hall. She starts to fantasize about their ambiguous relationships (who wouldn’t, after all?), intrigued by a fascinating microcosm that could have countless stories to tell. In this undeclared remake of REAR WINDOW, only the viewer will learn the truth in the film’s finale. The ambiguous, threatening atmosphere, the hypersensitive shots that seem to quiver on every detail, and the evocation of a cryptic, distant world make this a remarkable debut.
