Captain Dinesen has come from abroad with his daughter Ingebourg to take a job with the Argentine army. Ingebourg falls in love with a young soldier, and one night they run away together. When Dinesen realizes what has happened, he decides to venture into enemy territory, to find the young couple.
Remarkably bold filmmaking from Argentina’s Lisandro Alonso, the enigmatic Jauja is a postcolonial political allegory rendered in witty shots dazzlingly colored and composed. A film hypnotic and transfixing, minimalist and expressionistic. Starring Viggo Mortensen.
