Coronation | Chicago Reader

Coronation

An aging bachelor (Julio Jung) becomes obsessed with a poor city girl he's hired to look after his grandmother on their decaying estate. After enduring his jealous rages as well as the grandmother's senile outbursts, the girl (Adela Secall) brings the situation to a head by facilitating a robbery at the mansion, orchestrated by her boyfriend and his nefarious older brother. Based on a novel by Jose Donoso, this 2000 Chilean feature struggles to integrate too many things—a study of loneliness in old age, a tragedy of unrequited love, an indictment of class distinctions—before collapsing into lugubrious melodrama. Directed by Silvio Caiozzi. 140 min.
