Cast: Daniel Giménez Cacho, Lola Dueñas, Matheus Nachtergaele The long-awaited fourth feature from Martel (La Ciénaga) is a visionary rendering of 18th century colonialism. Trapped by bureaucrats in a provincial South American town, a Spanish officer longs for transfer to a more distinguished post. The longer he is forced to wait, the looser his grip on reality becomes.
