Lucrecia Martel’s first feature since 2008’s The Headless Woman is a sumptuous adaptation of Antonio Di Benedetto’s classic novel. In 18th century South America, Don Diego de Zama (Daniel Giménez Cacho) is a minor cog in the Spanish rule of what is now Paraguay. Far from home and separated from loved ones, he is shunned by his fellow Europeans and unsettled by the indigenous population. He lives on the promise of a letter from the King that will transfer him to Buenos Aires but as the years pass, frustration threatens his grip on reality. A beautifully crafted reflection on the catastrophe of colonialism. GFF18
