Parravicini plays his characteristic scoundrel-with-a-heart in this tragic melodrama of seduction, sacrifice and abandonment that is also a comedy of manners.
“The new film shows a considerable improvement regarding the sharpness of the cinematography and composition techniques comparing it with most of the films made so far in this country,” said La Prensa newspaper. Indeed, the film shows important technical and formal advances (the entire story is a flashback, something very unusual for that time) from Nobleza gaucha, the film from the same production company that was a hit the year before. It opened on August 13 th, 1916 at the Callao theater, and became one of the greatest film hits from that time. Written by actor Florencio Parravicini, Hasta después de muerta is the only remaining film of the three that were made in our country in 1916, although its negatives and 35mm nitrate prints were lost a long time ago. The Buenos Aires Film Museum has a 16mm negative, which was used to make an HD copy so it can be screened, a hundred years later, in Bafici. AL
