Dir. Benjamín Naishtat Argentina, Brazil, France, Netherlands, Germany, Belgium,Switzerland, 2018, 109 Min
There is a sense of menace underpinning Argentine director Benjamín Naishtat’s brilliant third feature. The film’s narrative, set in provincial Argentina in the mid-1970s, just before the military coup, concerns small-town lawyer Claudio (Darío Grandinetti), an ostensibly decent, law-abiding citizen, whose cool exterior is rattled by an investigation into the disappearance of a stranger seen in the area three months earlier. Flamboyant private investigator Sinclair (Alfredo Castro) rolls into town – in one of the film’s many nods to the western – to find out what has happened and in the process lifts the veneer of respectability under which Claudio, like many of the town’s great and good, operates. This is a disarming allegory about middle-class society turning a blind eye to the excesses committed in the name of so-called peace and stability.
Winner, Best Director, San Sebastián International Film Festival 2018
