Winner of Spain's Goya Award for Best Spanish Language Foreign Film and the Silver Lion at the Venice Film Festival, this is a funny, surreal and touching look at the obsessions of a filmmaker. Trying to make a movie about the real-life story of a historical figure who proclaimed himself the King of Patagonia, a film director finds that his own dreams of cinematic grandeur are quick to fall victim to the intrusion of reality. In Spanish with English subtitles.
