Zama, an officer of the Spanish Crown born in South America, waits for a letter from the King granting him a transfer from the town in which he is stagnating, to a better place.

He is forced to accept submissively every task entrusted to him by successive Governors who come and go as he stays behind.Written by

Not everything in this film works, but it has enough beauty in it to make it work and I do recommend it.
