El Canto del Cisne (Swan Song) was another feather in the cap of up-and-coming Argentine director Carlos Christiansen. Mecha Ortiz stars as an attractive woman of a certain age who falls in love with a much-younger composer (played by Roberto Escala). Though her lover isn't bothered by the differences in their ages, Ortiz becomes obsessively determined to retain her dazzling beauty. This leads to a tragedy of operatic dimensions, and a dramatic climax not dissimilar to the unforgettable finale of the 1946 Joan Crawford soap opera Humoresque. Enormously popular in Argentina, El Canto del Cisne didn't do too badly in other Spanish-language markets, either.
