The title of this 2003 comedy, if you can call it that, is the name of a long-stalled screenplay by the protagonist, an out-of-work Argentine film director (Lito Cruz) plagued by suicidal tendencies despite living in material comfort surrounded by indulgent relatives and a genial best friend. In his 60s but still vigorous and strikingly handsome, Quiroga is a hypochondriac, yet won't abide by his physician's warning to cut down on the smokes. As advancing age collides with his narcissism, resulting in little beyond tedious conversations and selfish and irresponsible behavior—particularly toward his sensitive grandson—one begins to wish the washed-up artist would just get dispatched already. Mario Sabato directed. In Spanish with subtitles. 97 min.
