Storyline

Vargas, a 54 year old man, gets out of jail in the prvince of Corrientes, Argentina. Once released, he wants to find his now adult daughter, who lives in a swampy and remote area. To get there, he must cross great distances in a small boat on the rivers, scoring deep into the jungle. Vargas is a quiet and self-contained man. He possesses the restraint of those living close to nature. A deep mystery surrounds him, the people he encounters and the places he goes through, all that taking in the unalterable world he finds almost unchanged after his long years of incarceration.

One should tell viewers that "Los Meurtos" is not an experimental film.
8 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

A viewer can expect a lot in terms of action and plot from a film about a prisoner who has been released from a prison.However,there are films which give the impression of visual stories where a lot happens even though viewers are unable to make sense of those happenings.In such films,a conjuring effect is created according to which nothing seems to happen but in reality a lot of minor events are shown to happen at regular intervals in the film.It is from such an angle that viewers can watch "Los Muertos" directed by talented Argentinian filmmaker Lisandro Alonso.The ruthlessness with which two murders are committed in the beginning lead viewers to believe that mystery and suspense would be evident through the film.This belief is quickly contradicted when the film begins to concentrate more on daily life of the protagonist.The result is good for eyes but fails to fulfill the expectations of the mind.Los Muertos is not an experimental film.It is a normal feature film which any ordinary viewer would like to watch.
