A sumptuous and often very funny period piece based on the Argentine novel of the same name by Antonio Di Benedetto. Don Diego de Zama is an 18th-century Spanish magistrate - born in Latin America, and so deemed inferior to his European counterparts - eternally languishing in wait for a transfer from the outpost to which he has been relegated without his family. When his last hope of departure comes to nothing, Zama joins an expedition to track down a legendary outlaw who may or may not exist.

“The film's final sequences reach a fever pitch of hallucinatory splendour, the widescreen vistas of death-lurked landscapes amongst cinema's most memorably strange since the early days of Werner Herzog. " TIFF
