The Window

DIRECTOR: Carlos Sorin - Argentina

Set in the lush Patagonia countryside, The Window is a tender, nostalgic film about nature, memory, aging and impending death.  Ill and bedridden, 80-year-old Antonio awaits a visit from his estranged son, now a world-famous concert pianist. He wants everything to be perfect for the reunion, and the women who coddle and nurse him in his hacienda work non-stop to make him happy. A piano tuner arrives make sure that the instrument is in working order, and the champagne bottle that has been kept in the cellar for 40 yars is on hand for the welcome toast.  Unable to assist with the preparations, Antionio can only examine the world from his window.  As he observes the magnificence of the land, his nostalgia grows and his memories of the past seem to permeate his room.  Antonio deicdes to defy his doctor's orders, and secretly leaves the house to take one last walk in his fields.

Selected Filmography: A King and His Movie (86), Intimate Stories (02), Bombon: El Perro (04).
