Storyline

Los Buscadores follows Manu (Tomás Arredondo), a newspaper delivery boy who lives in La Chacarita and works in the outskirts of Asunción, who one day receives a book that talks about the history of Paraguay, but later discovers that he is hiding a map that may or may not reveal the exact location of a treasure hidden at the time of the Triple Alliance War. Together with his friend Fito (Christian Ferreira) and Don Elio (Mario Toñanez), a gentleman who knows about the adventures of the silver "los buscadores" of Yvyguy, they decide to follow the clues and look for the treasure, which would put an end to the economic problems that everybody is going through living very close to the flooding of the Paraguay River.

Fun and Chaotic
17 April 2018 | by reidandgeneneSee all my reviews

This is an excellent caper movie by the director of the superb '7 Boxes' from a few years ago. Initially, I thought this might be a 'Young Indiana Jones' (or should I say 'Young Paraguay Jones'?) as our young hero looks for a treasure map. Instead, the movie soon smoothly transitions into an excellent caper movie. Plans are made and go awry. Other groups try to horn into the action, and a lot of fun chaos ensues.

The movie gradually introduces quite a few characters, but they are well-drawn and well acted, so it is never difficult to tell them apart. The Asuncion setting is also interesting, with the river rising to threaten whole neighborhoods. The motif of rising water is cleverly echoed in throughout the movie.

The title in English, The Gold Seekers, is not really accurate. It isn't gold that they are after. But I suppose using the title 'The Searchers' would evoke John Wayne in a confusing way.
