Trivia

When it became clear that two additional scenes would help the script, a) the quarrel about whether Cecilia should publish her article and b) the flashback scene why the Cecilia and Carlos got married, there was a little competition going on between 'Christopher Hampton' and 'Emma Thompson', who both wrote their versions of those scenes. Emma Thompson's version of the flashback scene finally was agreed on. See more »

Goofs

When Cecilia is seen by Carlos in the roof of "Casa Rosada", there is a modern surveillance camera near the characters. Those cameras were not available in 1976. See more »

A wonderful and important film, with outstanding performances by Antonio Banderas and Emma Thompson
16 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

This riveting film demonstrates why great actors and actresses such as Antonio Banderas and Emma Thompson perform in "popcorn" movies -- it allows them the financial freedom to make truly important films. "Imagining Argentina" is just such a film. Passion, suspense, devotion, romance, and probing insights into human nature -- the best and worse within us -- make this film a tremendous credit to those who made it. What's amazing is how little press this received. It's beautiful; it literally kept me on the edge of my seat for more than half the movie. The acting is superb, the story-line captivating. Highly recommended. The DVD will be part of my permanent collection.
