    Synopsis


    The Window
    Bombón -- El Perro director Carlos Sorin writes and directs this nostalgic meditation on memory, aging, and death concerning a bedridden 80-year-old father anticipating the arrival of his long-estranged son, a world-renowned concert pianist. Antonio (Antonio Larreta) is nearing the end of his days, though before he goes, he longs for one last visit with the son he hasn't seen in years. In order to ensure that everything is perfect for their long-overdue reunion, Antonio asks his caretakers to make his hacienda presentable, hires a piano tuner to ensure that the instrument is in working order, and calls for a 40-year-old bottle of champagne to be brought up from the cellar for a special toast. Later, as Antonio watches preparations for the reunion being made from his window, he becomes overwhelmed by feelings of nostalgia and wistfulness. His doctor has ordered him to remain in bed at all costs, but as the beauty of Patagonia beckons him to rise, Antonio slips by his faithful caretakers for one last walk through his lavish fields. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
