Interesting as a picture of a contemporary Argentinian life and traditions, but as a story it has some mighty dull moments. It is a story of family entanglements, of the interpenetration of the women with their social pattern, their insidious methods of capturing and holding their men. The story revolves around two girls, ""adopted"" sisters, as one gets the man she wants through the obvious machinations of an ambitious and determined mama, and the other releases the man she loves for fear that he, too, may feel himself caught in a web. Convincing enough -- but inadequate as a plot.
