Tony Manero
directed by Pablo Larraín
casting Alfredo Castro, Amparo Noguera, Paola Lattus, Hector Morales
(Chile/Brazil, 2008, 97′)

Chile, 1978. While Pinochet’s police force hunts down the opponents of the regime, fifty-year old Raùl, a violent and impotent fanatic, lives with the obsession of emulating Tony Manero, the hero of Saturday Night Fever. He does an imitation of him every evening in a sordid family-run nightclub. A television look-alike contest becomes his big chance. And Raùl will do anything to make his dream come true, even kill.
