Invasión is an Argentine film released in 1969 and directed by Hugo Santiago. It is an example of an inter phase between the classic cinema and nouvelle vague of French style.

Plot[edit]

A group of men commanded by an older man attempts to stop an invasion to the city of Aquilea. The invaders are common men who defend the city, ignored by the people in general, but with the development of the film it is understood that the invasion is absolute and impossible to define. The defeat of the defenders is evident from the beginning, as in the "Trojan War".

Characters[edit]

  • Don Porfirio, played by Juan Carlos Paz: He is the head of the defenders. He calls one by one, giving them the instructions, but he also has other plans.
  • Julián Herrera, played by Lautaro Murúa: Commands the men who fight the invaders. Flat Hero, without visible emotions, almost the prototype of the Borgean compadrito.
  • Irene, played by Olga Zubarry: Herrera's wife, has a double life, and the discovery of this double life was the final surprise of the film.
