The Argentine Fridays of Eternity takes a simple romantic plot and gives it texture with a scintilla of fantasy. Thelma Biral and Hector Alterio are the lovers who pledge eternal devotion. In this case, eternity is not a affectionate exaggeration; it is, indeed, Eternity. Combining other-worldly elements with standard plot devices is not unusual in Argentine films; indeed, many viewers have come to expect it, and are disappointed if the Supernatural is not part and parcel of the package. Director Hector Olivera (A Funny, Dirty Little War, Barbarian Queen etc.) may well emerge in future references as the single most prolific and influential filmmaker in Argentina.
