‘Cronica’ flies with Condors award

Thriller won honors for film, screenplay, sets

BUENOS AIRES — Israel Adrian Caetano’s “Cronica de una fuga” (Chronicle of an Escape) took the top prize Monday at the Argentine Assn. of Film Journalists’ awards for 2006.

Thriller, which tells the story of a kidnapping during Argentina’s 1976-83 military dictatorship, won Condors de Plata for film, adapted screenplay and set design at the 55th edition of the country’s biggest film awards ceremony.

Pic was in competition at Cannes last year.

Daniel Burman’s father-and-son drama “Ley de familia” (Family Law), the country’s candidate for foreign-language Oscar nomination, scooped director, original screenplay and supporting actor (Arturo Goetz).

Rodrigo Moreno’s bodyguard drama “El custodio,” honored at Berlin, Guadalajara and Sundance, took the debut feature trophy and the lead actor nod for Julio Chavez.

Valeria Bertucelli drew the actress plaudit for her role in Diego Lerman’s “Mientras Tanto” (Meanwhile), a low-budget tale of different people in Buenos Aires, and Evangelina Salazar picked up supporting actress for her performance in Luis Ortega’s “Monobloc.”
