Diffuses Unbehagen von Beginn an. Inés arbeitet als Synchronsprecherin in Buenos Aires, in ihrer Freizeit singt sie in einem Chor. Kürzlich erst kam auf traumatische Weise ihr Liebesleben zum Erliegen, nun aber taucht dieser recht ansehnliche Orgelstimmer auf. Doch wo kommen nur auf einmal all die Störgeräusche her? Und was da in den Schatten lauert, ist es die Einbildung einer Hysterischen oder tatsächliche Bedrohung? Getarnt als Horrorthriller bewegt sich EL PRÓFUGO in einer Grauzone zwischen machistischer Übergriffigkeit und feministischer Befreiung und lotet die Untiefen weiblichen Begehrens aus. Dass Inés die Geister, die sie rief, nicht mehr los wird, ist am Ende kein Wunder. (Alexandra Seitz)

A couple still getting to know each other go on a trip together. Their destination is Mexico. The flight introduces the nightmarish tone (not without humor) that will be present throughout. A terrible event happens during their trip, which marks the point from which Inés' experience starts moving away from reality as she suffers a slow breakdown. Back in Buenos Aires, she's unable to carry on with her life. Inés' perceptual confusion will mark the plot twists as well as forging the uncanny atmosphere which is also derived from the film's universe of sound. The inconsistency of reality is created via intelligent work with the continuity of the film and the playful way in which the relationship between voice, body, and psyche is merged. The continuity of space and time is always a bit out of synch. And what happens to Inés – who believes that she is possessed by fugitive voices – is a perfect way to put us inside the mind of someone whose profession is dubbing, which introduces a mismatch between body and voice by its very definition. (Roger Koza)
