Don Diego de Zama is an 18th-century Spanish magistrate eternally languishing in wait for a transfer from the outpost to which he has been relegated. When his last hope of departure comes to naught, Zama joins an expedition to track down Vicuña Porto, a legendary outlaw who may or may not exist.

Our take

Nine years after The Headless Woman, Argentine master Lucrecia Martel returns with this ingenious adaptation of the frenzied first-person novel Zama, brilliantly inserting her own contemporary commentary on masculinity and colonialism. A singular and stupefying, cutting-edge period drama.
