La Rabona ("The Truant") is a 1979 Argentine comedy film directed by Mario David.[1] It stars Alberto Closas, Claudia Cárpena, and Perla Santalla. The screenplay was written by the director Mario David, working in collaboration with Isaac Aisemberg. Atilio Stampone composed the soundtrack.[2]


A man and his daughter, tired of family feuding and their routines, skip work and school the same day.



La Rabona was produced by Horacio Parisotto and Mario Fasola under the Fotograma SRL Producciones Cinematográficas production company. The screenplay was written by the director Mario David, working in collaboration with Isaac Aisemberg. Cinematographer José Santiso was hired to shoot the film. Atilio Stampone composed the soundtrack.[2]


Néstor, writing in Esquiú wrote: "Well-intentioned and with a certain moralizing tendency... the liberality of modernist customs contrasts with the modesty and purity of the traditional family habits". Rafael Granados opined: "Mario David constructs a sensitive film, whose images are spoken softly". In their 2001 book Un diccionario de films argentinos (1930-1995), Raúl Manrupe and María Alejandra Portela describe the film as a "discreet effort to get away from an industry in crisis, in a difficult time not only for the cinema".[3]
