Plot Summary

El Muerto is the story of a Spanish man in Argentina who one day becomes aware on the upper floor of a hospital in Buenos Aires of his approaching death. He decides to escape, to flee towards the north and across Argentina. This last cross has no specific destination. Only matters movement and sensation of extreme freedom, but above all, the feeling to leave behind only the last moment of life. Hit-man of his condition, he is intimate with death. That's why he serenely moves forward her. His long wondering, being similar by many aspects to a modern novel of cavalry. In this paradoxical movement of avoiding death while rushing towards her, he meets a women, she will be his rider. This movie is the story of a hit-man who does not murder. A story of guns that don't do fire, dogs and roads. Written by Production

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia When director Javier Rebollo saw the first cut, he realized that José Sacristán had made the character of Santos, a hit man, much more lovable that Rebollo and her co-writer Lola Mayo originally intended. That's the main reason why Rebollo and Mayo recorded a constant voice over trough the whole movie, to try to neutralize Santos's charm. See more »
