The heart-attack death last year of Fabiàn Bielinsky, the Buenos Aires-born 47-year-old director of Nine Queens, makes the posthumous release of The Aura, his mysterious drama about an Argentinean epileptic taxidermist caught up in a vivid crime, that much more poignant. Ricardo Darín, wearing a mild-mannered expression of emotional remove, plays the unnamed antihero, obsessed with imagining the perfect robbery. The ”aura” is the clarity with which he sees — or imagines he sees — the world in moments preceding an epileptic attack.
