La punta del Diablo (Devil's Point) at the Cervantes, 6:30 PM
A surgeon from Buenos Aires, wearied by personal problems and the endless cycle of work, leaves for a week's skiing vacation in the south. Instead, on impulse, he follows a young hitchhiker to a small fishing village, Devil's Point, in the north, on the coast of Uruguay. He makes fleeting acquaintance with some of the villagers, and learns that the only thing to do in winter is to wait for summer.
Feature, Argentina/Uruguay/Venezuela, 2006, 90 min, by Marcelo Paván. In Spanish (subtitles unspecified).
