Example text

The supervisor in an act of genuine if ingenuous trust gives Pedro a 50-peso bill and asks him to buy him some cigarettes from the shop on the corner just outside the borstall. Jaibo is outside, sees the money, wrestles Pedro to the ground and, by taking the money, in effect strips Pedro of his last hope of ‘social redemption’. It is at this point that a change occurs in Pedro and he decides – foolishly perhaps – to attempt to destroy Jaibo. He avails himself of a knife – which he keeps hidden – and then challenges Jaibo to a fight, which he loses, but – no doubt in order to avenge himself – he then publicly reveals that Jaibo killed Julián.

This comes as no surprise given its self-appointed audience. qxd 8/24/04 1:03 AM Page 37 robin-bobin DOS TIPOS DE CUIDADO 37 of the piece with whom the audience is encouraged to identify, is a rich man who owns an impressive car – he is the only person we know for definite to be a carowner – who becomes a landowner early on – specifically the point at which he buys the ranch from a friend in the opening sequences of the film. It ought to be underlined, as well, that he does not need to organise a loan in order to buy the land – he simply agrees to buy it.

He does not smoke, and refuses to bend to peer pressure when he is called a ‘mariquita’ (pansy) for refusing a drag. He does not drink, as is suggested very plainly by the scene early on in the film when he is seen dragging his drunk father home from the local bar. The suggestion – as the script makes clear – is that he has to do this every night. But perhaps most important is the fact that he works for a living; and he does so not only to sustain himself but also his father, as his father rather weepily acknowledges when he is being escorted home by Julián.
