Gastón Fernández has arrived at 34 without too much to show or brag about. He has no money, job, girlfriend, friends or life plan. He's a composer that doesn't compose. The one-time "most likely to succeed" at Santiago's Musical Conservatory has passed from promise to failure. He feels he is beginning to wander alone. Isolated and detached. Gastón feels that everyone judges him and see the word loser tattooed on his forehead. At the same time, an alter-ego, a sort of doppelgänger, haunts him. A young man, in a long, black coat, walks in a empty city that watches each and every one of his steps. A city that's in black and white. A city that is and is not Santiago. Is this strange, empty and foggy city part of his past or is it an invention? What seems a dream or a nightmare is actually a movie: The Killer Ants, a film directed by Luc Fernández, his cousin, many years ago, when everyone was young, idealistic and thought that things would turn out differently. But things change and so do... Written by

I don't know exactly how to comment this movie 'cause i've been waiting for it from a long time ago. I was afraid that all my expectations were fake and that the movie was a bad one, but all can i say is that i really like it. I'm not gonna tell the story 'cause others guys already done, but i can tell you that is a deep look to many of us, like Gaston(Luciano Cruz-Coke) who is really scared about the future, the way his life is going to turnout,how to make his dreams come true, become the one that he wants to be and not the one who they want him to be. I believe that something happens to many of us, in different levels. Gastón speaks through the music and through the images of "las hormigas asesinas" (an already classic history for the ones who have read Alberto Fuguet's Books). Is the story of a reconciliation with yourself and your world, of knowing yourself and what you want, is a story of many of us that doesn't always know how the tomorrow is going to be, that has a believe. Go to see this movie, enjoy it, "it's a long story".
