Synopsis

On the verge of a forced retirement, an elderly office worker begins to relive real and imagined memories from his life, from conversations with Long John Silver to cinema trips with Beethoven to a brief stay in a haunted hotel. All the while, a sinister end appears to be closing in…

Our take

We love this film but are saddened to play it. Why? It is Chilean exile-fabulist Raúl Ruiz’s final film, marking the end of a career that seemed to be always expanding in wild, unexpected directions. Here Ruiz returns to his homeland to fashion an oneiric and playful ode to old age and cinephilia.
