Storyline

Fabián, a magician from Buenos Aires, saves his money from weddings, birthdays, and bar mitzvahs, and uses a hidden camera to document a week-long trip to the Falkland Islands where he has a patriotic plan: to impregnate a British woman. If 500 Argies do this annually, the islands will soon be overrun with children belonging to both cultures. He spends his first couple of days in Stanley doing reconnaissance, setting his sights on Camila, whom he's first seen in church. He chats her up at an Internet café. They go out for drinks, then dinner, then to the see the King penguins and a 1982 battlefield. Back home, editing his Dogma 95 film, he receives a final message from Camila.

Budget film-making with a funny premise
2 October 2004 | by gripfasterSee all my reviews

Fuckland is a funny movie with incredibly low production values and an interesting idea. It is promoted as a documentary about an Argentine man who wants to impregnate an English woman in order that Argentines can take over the Falklands by stealth. Most of the movie is shot in hidden camera mode and there is shots of the main actor walking around the Falklands supposedly finding an English woman to knock up.

The confusing thing about this movie is that although the shots of the normal people on the island are realistic, it doesn't make sense that the filmmaker could film himself having sex with a woman using a sabotaged condom and then sell the doco to networks. Of course when one check IMDb we can see that the women he "has sex" with is an actor as well, and the documentary is not really a documentary, but a movie masquerading as a doco.

The question that I have afterwards however is what was real and what wasn't. Did all the people the main actor spoke to know that he was filming? Did the guy really hate the English who live on the Falklands? How much of the dialogue was scripted?

Overall it was an interesting movie, but it brought up a number of questions that will probably never be answered.
