The death of a famous uruguayan writer, unleashes a strange search for the missing last interview he gave, before his disappearance
30 November 1999 | by MazorulerSee all my reviews

A fascinating, often surrealistic tale, where various excentric and mysterious characters struggle to resolve (or not) a mystery that links the death of one of Uruguay´s most famous exiled poets and the suicide, at the beginning of the century, of an ex president of that Republic. Among the characters, a french reporter join forces with a translator and a juvenile delicuent named "Moco", to find the lost last interview that the poet gave before dying. A strange and often puzzling film in which the atmosphere sometimes turns more important than the plot itself. This was the first movie to be filmed in Uruguay in almost two decades.
