Argentina: Cinema: Fabián Bielinsky 1959-2006

Argentine illustrator Roberto Bobrow explains his prolonged absence from the blogosphere: “Fabián is (I refuse to use the past tense) my younger cousin, the son of the younger sister of my mother. He is also considered the best Argentinean moviemaker in many years. With just two movies (written and directed) in five years he got the first one (‘Nine queens’) remade in the USA (‘Criminal’) and the second (‘The Aura’) chosen for the Oscar awards. But Fabián is something else to me: more like the little brother I would wish to have.”
