Zama (15)


An Argentine drama, set in the seventeenth century, in which a Spanish officer settled in Asuncion awaits his transfer to Buenos Aires.

The critical consensus

Hard to suppress the hyperbole with this one. Truly an awesome achievement.

*****David Jenkins, Little White Lies, 24/05/2018

Highly original Argentine adaptation surprises with brutality and lyricism.

****(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 24/05/2018

In Lucrecia Martel’s magnificent drama, a Spanish officer stuck at a remote South American outpost numbs his burgeoning panic with erotic reveries.
