REBOLLEDO, Matías. LA PALABRA, LA IMAGEN Y EL MUNDO: LAS NOVELAS DE VARGAS LLOSA EN EL CINE. Rev. chil. lit. [online]. 2011, n.80, pp. 143-170. ISSN 0718-2295. doi: 10.4067/S0718-22952011000300008.
Nowadays, one of the most concrete ways to measure an author's cultural and artistic impact is the amount of reinterpretations over his works (in literature, theatre, cinema, etc.). Each one of these versions produces new interpretations and perspectives over the original texts, in a constant dialogue. One of the most adapted Latin-American authors to cinema is Mario Vargas Llosa, which reveals the importance of a critical study of the film versions of his works. Thus, this article reviews the three main adaptations of his novels (The Time of the Hero, Captain Pantoja and the Special Service, and The Feast of the Goat) by analyzing central aspects pertaining either to structures or themes in order to elucidate certain dimensions relevant not only to each particular adaptation, but also to this discursive interchange in general.
