Exceptional dystopian film about future that could be if water depletion continues
28 December 2017 | by makocian-931-920538See all my reviews

The film "Los Últimos" takes us into post-apocalyptic not-so-distant future in which there is war over water. This war reaches Latin America and the story follows a young couple trying to escape refugee camp in Bolivia and find better life in the west by the Pacific Ocean.

The script, penned by film's director Nicolás Puenzo together with his sister Lucía, also a film director and novelist, explores different angles of the war over water and in many situations hints on further and deeper issues that might not appear at first. The story shows the role of media, military contractors, journalism or medical aid in the war zone. Puenzo's eye for cinematography is absolutely stunning. The film is shot in several natural reserves of Bolivia and Chile and is complemented by very well done post-production of destroyed cities or military drones.

The young couple is portrayed by Peter Lanzani and Juana Burga, who is exceptional in her role despite the fact that the film is her acting debut. Who also stands out in her role is Uruguayan actress Natalia Oreiro who despite short screen time captivates the audience in well portrayed role of medic trying to help the couple.

Another remarkable element is the music. Composer Pedro Canale managed to combine soundtrack composition with traditional native sounds and vocals provided by Luzmila Carpio. The soundtrack matches beautifully the scenery and adds to the overall atmosphere.

"Los Últimos" is a very well-done film, with outstanding cinematography and acting. It is an exceptional film as the post-apocalyptical genre is rather rare in Argentinean filmmaking. The film can be enjoyed by everyone looking for dynamic survival storytelling, and further, the audience gets a glimpse of the world that could be if water depletion continues.
