A 77-year-old man marries a 33-year-old woman. Three years later, she murders him with the help of her brother. Five years later, Córdoba’s Court of Law sentences them to a life in prison. The film builds up many points of view in order to achieve an new look on the case that upset a town.

According to the 2010 census, San José de las Salinas, on the north of the Córdoba province, had 662 inhabitants. That sum no longer included Ramón Cáceres, who had died at the hands of his wife and brother-in-law five years before: the only crime in that town’s history. They had gotten married in secret when Cáceres was 77 and she was 33. The case was covered by the press (mainly because of the unbelievable part played by a donkey in its solving) and was later forgotten. Fortunately, Distéfano didn’t, and made one of the most rigorous, lucid, attentive –to details of the landscape and also to what his interviewees say– Argentine documentaries in recent history. Crimen de Las Salinas transcends the news story and builds up, even though in the film it’s always daytime, the disturbing portrait of quite a few obscurities. AM
