Jesus' Heart

A black comedy (2003) from Bolivia about a petty bureaucrat who finds it's easier to cheat death than insurance collectors. Middle-aged Jesus Martinez suffers a heart attack on the job, but upon his recovery his wife clears out their bank account and leaves him. When he's presented with a medical bill eight times his salary, he's desperate to cash in on benefits denied him on a technicality, so he impersonates another Jesus Martinez, this one a young man languishing from a brain tumor. The elder Jesus's battle with the medical establishment ironically adds zest and purpose to a drab existence. Marcos Loayza directed. 88 min.
