Agustín Villaronga's Tras el cristal
(In a Glass Cage, 1986)
Agustín Villaronga's debut horror film, with its "pervasive air of disturbing sensuality, its unflinching cruelty and glimpses of the grotesque," possesses a unique power to haunt and disturb viewers. Chris Gallant takes a close look at this "lyrical nightmare" dealing with themes of fascism, eroticism and child abuse.
