Days in the Country

Días de campo

Directed by Raúl Ruiz
Chile, France, 2004


In a bar in Santiago, two old men talk over their past. This is a strange discussion. In fact, they talk of themselves as if they were dead. We don’t know what is true or false, what is dream or reality.

Critics reviews

Ruiz tries not to yield to a bankrupt sentimentality – those sentiments too quickly offered and digested – through his work with his actors, upon whom he gazes more as an entomologist or an explorer than as a father-confessor. In this respect, the supreme impassivity of Marcial Edwards (the ‘young’ don Fernando, aged sixty) is exemplary.
