Storyline

Mancano pochi minuti alla fine dell'Ottocento e, davanti alla cattedrale di Santiago del Cile, un mendicante sente che sta per lasciare questo mondo. Decide così di raccontare la sua storia. Il pover'uomo è Julius Popper, ingegnere rumeno che nel 1860 aveva inventato un nuovo sistema per estrarre l'oro e si era insediato nella Tierra del Fuego, in Patagonia, in nome della regina Carmen Sylba. Molti i personaggi e gli avvenimenti che gli tornano in mente. Dalla maitresse Armenia, sua amante, all'avventuriero italiano Spiro, dal sergente austriaco Novak alla bellissima india Elisa, al gallese Silveira, nostalgico delle cornamuse. Ma la lotta per il possesso del prezioso metallo lo porterà a scontrarsi con i proprietari terrieri e con gli indios. Popper diventa così il "Re dei Paramos (le lande desolate della Terra del Fuoco)" e si circonda di un esercito fantasma che gli servirà per arrivare allo sterminio degli indios, in nome di un falso progresso.

Masterpiece
24 June 2000 | by wjficklingSee all my reviews

I hope this wonderful Chilean film finds a US distributor. I saw this at an American Cinematheque presentation in Hollywood. I had never heard of the director before. The themes are somewhat hackneyed--the corrosive and ultimately destructive influence of power and megalomania on a seemingly stable personality; the devastating effect of European colonizers on the Indians; the frontier as a repository for all kinds of misfits, adventurers, loners, and psychopaths. There are signs of the influence of such films as "Aguirre, the Wrath of God" and "Viridiana." Yet, it all works, and powerfully. This certainly deserves an audience beyond the cinematheque and art house circuit. See it if you can!
