Los enemigos del dolor  (The Enemies of Pain)

Uruguay, Brazil  ·  2014  ·  DCP  ·  Color  ·  80'  ·  o.v. Spanish/German

A German actor lands in Montevideo. Rude and speaking very little Spanish, he gets himself in trouble: only a few hours after his arrival, he gets lost and runs into a group of young men who try to rob him. Pedro, an ex-addict in his forties, not only intervenes and helps him getting away, he also gives him a roof and some advice about the city. Over the course of the next days, the actor tells his story of lost love to several strangers, thus meeting Nelson, a laconic security guard whose wife has left him. Along with Pedro, the two men set out for a journey through the suburbs of Montevideo to try to find the actor’s wife. United by their sufferings and blinded by their inner turmoil, this improvised gang raises hell in a desperate city where the only people left are the ones who could not leave.
