Misterio (Estudio Q)

Mystery (Studio Q)


Marcela Fernández Violante


A soap opera actor suddenly discovers that he has lost all contact with reality. Horrified, he tries to get out of the soap opera that his life has turned into, but when he manages to escape, he finds himself inside another soap opera as ridiculous and schematic as the previous one. Set in the chaotic world of television, the film is an allegory about the impossibility of human will. Just as actors repeat what they hear from the prompter, man's actions are directed by a higher power. Unable to be a person, the actor resigns himself to being one more character in the crazy plot in which, against his will, he participates.
