78 min

Vargas, a 54 year old man, gets out of jail in the province of Corrientes, Argentina. Once released, he wants to find his now adult daughter who lives in a swampy and remote area. To get there, he must cross great distances in a small boat on the rivers scoring deep into the jungle. Vargas is a quiet and self-contained man, he possesses the restraint of those living close to nature. A deep mystery surrounds him, the people he encounters, and the places he goes through that takes in the unalterable world he finds almost unchanged after his long years of incarceration. Lisandro Alonso has a unique visual style. His camera stares and stares at the world, revealing intense beauty shot through with sudden violence. He also has a radically stripped down approach to narrative, obliging us to piece together the story from the tiniest hints. (S.F. Said)
