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 Cinépata

Fuguet films as he writes
13 October 2005 | by rcortes-2See all my reviews

Fuguet is not a good writer. His stories are not good. He has no style, though i cannot get rid of each of the characters that appear in his stories. Same thing with "Se Arrienda". Braun and Saavedra perform as awful as one can expect of them. Cruz-Coke is not that bad (he was good at "dos hermanos". He was outstanding at "largo viaje del día hacia la noche", he was so bad at "Señorita Julia" -which was directed by Braun-, and please let us forget, "Enigma"). Evidently, Francisca Lewin and Ignacia Allamand are the one making the best effort here. The story is simple. Those of you who know by heart "una Vida modelo" will recognize some of the characters. But even if you feel something is missing here, that is not well solved or settled, the film still works, as Fuguet's books. The music is outstanding! And there are some details that one can forgive because of the needed marketing, as Villouta's (each day in a more Viñuela way) appearing talking about nothing. Fuguet is great. Don't know why really, but his stories and "se arrienda" worth the while, definitely.
