Chile, Germany, Mexico | 2010 | Pablo Larrain
The director and star of the haunting 2008 black comedy Tony Manero return with a chilling new tale of Pinochet’s Chile. Set during the violent overthrow of President Salvador Allende in 1973, the movie focuses on a gaunt Santiago mortuary worker who becomes infatuated with an erotic dancer next door. When the right-wing authorities target the dancer’s left-leaning household, she hides out with our ashen protagonist, who also must deal with a ballooning number of autopsies at work. A 2011 New York Film Festival selection. “Enthralling…Emotionally gripping.” –Variety.
