Storyline

When the Chilean officials lift the ban on harvesting the shellfish "el loco" (which purportedly is an aphrodisiac) in the seaside village of Puerto Gala greed and lust take hold. Greed is embodied by Carlos Maldonato, "El Canuto," who attempts to buy all of the shellfish for a Japanese company, and by a traveling band of prostitutes that accompany the influx of fishermen. El Canuto also wrangles to get into good stead with an old flame, Sonia, who is now the proprietor of "La Pincoya," a local restaurant. But "el loco" proves more effective, and more damaging, than anyone could have guessed. Written by Anonymous

LA FIEBRE DEL LOCO (DIDIER BECU)
14 August 2003 | by (Gent, Belgium) – See all my reviews

Here is one of these movies that tell you something about life, a sort of sociological documentary... Somewhere on an island in Chilli there is a waterplant that is so rare that it's only for some days allowed to get them out of the water for selling them. This is an unique opportunity for those who wanna go for some money, so our protagonists arrive with a fishingboat and the local inhabitants work for them (at least that's what they think as the money that they're paid with is false). You don't see that much happening in the movie, except for a bus with whores who travel from city to city to earn money (and guess who's having most at the end, them or the fishers). The story is quite original and good but the big problem with this movie is that all actors are uninteresting, they're just like some pieces from a background whose sole task is to tell some words. Not the baddest of the baddest but to say it's worth seeing?, no....
