The XVII century. The Spanish officer and the official Diego de Zama too spent a long time away from homeland, South American hell Asuncion, and eager to return to Buenos Aires to family. But the king sent a petition about the translation is problematic and Diego waiting is slowly rotting away.

Of longing, of futility and disgust. So come to mind polygalae, rotted and drunken heroes "the Rum diary" Thompson. And authentic deliberation, even the monotony of tempo as in movie another conqueror Lope de Aguirre, only emphasizes the immersion, the current hero of Deputies in the despair, hopelessness and passing the accumulation of different problems, fears and paranoia. Video output hero on the second circle of hell, have the passage of the dangerous trails at the trail took out all the bandit Vicuna Porto. Not sure whether there was the second part of the film, so much needed when the first Lucrecia Martel actually managed to say exactly everything about the subject. Except that shows Diego already final helpless hostage to someone's whim. Whether the king, the Indians or bandits.

Measured and calm, confidence and relaxation here key components for hypnotic techniques. However, I not an expert, the more than the expert. It so in the context of the contemplative effect of the spectacle of the paintings. It can be TRANS no external influences. Viscous, slow in stretching, calms and slowly tells the story.

What is before us? A historical chronicle. The faraway land of Latin America. XIX century. Official on the service of the Spanish crown. He arbiter by law, but spirit is exhausted while the body of all so energetic. He fifty or so. The yearning for the spouse, home, family torn his mind. Once again he turn on the sea coming to the water's edge, where far from over miles of ocean, in the distant Europe, the embers of its fire. Coming from the distant continent of an occasion not bring tidings, the flow of letters dried up and despair doubt irritates, oppresses. The monotony of the depressing and the trouble he hopes to achieve translation in Buenos Aires.

In the absence of the wife hardly not every woman awakens the poetics of the body, attracts its kind, and like the vulture, devours passion of others to overwhelm our eyes a Minister. He barely restrained, pulsating blood hits heat in the head, as the impatient stallion exciting crosses with feet leg waiting for a rider, so don Diego de Deputy burns blazing.

The prison service continues. Are the end of his days he voluntary convict. Duty and service scale with human nature. A possible to change everything? What outweigh? And can be stultifying heat of the climate, coupled with the fevered consciousness will bring it to madness? The situation its getting worse day by days.

The slow pace of changing personnel — integrity of the unity of the scene for a scene. The monotony and uniformity up to the very end? And what the surrounding? Looking for them it is unclear what they do than busy. Their life — a bad dream, a complete wasteland of existence. Local natives — like domesticated cattle, — it's not the animals, but still not people. And children half-breeds? They who? Same biomass digging "in the muck"?

Different world, different mentality, absolutely non-canonical painting school. Look and understand — you a tropical jungle, right — wood, — grass, Yes — impassable thicket. But everything else here. And "cinnabar" is different. Where the boundaries of fiction? Where the reality? Before the audience is barely not a sick man with inflamed consciousness and the author depicts it with such colors, which our watercolor palette just yet available. We faced with them. Not familiar.

When it would seem the plot is totally exhausted, impoverished by the spectacle, went on the decline, the Creator throws in the fight heavy artillery — adventure excursion hardly not stone age. The journey begins in the depths of the continent. A small detachment of soldiers on the March transition. &Nbsp;chilling horror scenes in the eyes of our character... With than to compare the power of perception? Perhaps with the  Apocalypse now (1979) F. F. Coppola — captain delves into the Cambodian jungle. And living will envy the dead...
