'The Official Story'

September 14, 1997|Sheila Benson

The 1985 winner of the best foreign film Oscar is a work of surpassing subtlety and insight in which a dark-eyed, dark-haired Argentine professor of history (Norma Aleandro, right) begins to suspect that her adopted child (Analia Castro, left with Hector Alterio) might be the offspring of desparecidos. The film is set in 1983, in the wake of the crumbling of Argentina's military dictatorship. Directed and co-written by Luis Puenzo (Cinemax Saturday at 8 p.m).
