'Por El Camino' Is 'Lost In Translation' Set In Uruguay

Film by Charly Braun

Posted on

Santiago, a twenty-something Argentinean, takes a boat to Montevideo to claim land willed to him by his parents.

On his way out of the capitol, he notices Juliette, a young Belgian woman who was also on the boat.

After discovering they're heading in the same direction, the two travelers hit the road together.

Both are looking to make a change in their lives:

Santiago used to be an investment banker in Manhattan, but his parents' death has inspired him to try something different.

Juliette is hoping to ignite a relationship with a Uruguayan commune leader she'd met in Costa Rica.

The two strike up a playful friendship as their trip brings them in contact with peculiar locals...

Santiago's wealthy, well-connected family...

and the hippy commune's earthy residents.

Braun combines French, U.S., and South American influences with dramatic Uruguayan landscapes...

and his lead's relaxed chemistry to create a road movie that captures the airy restlessness of youth...

in the tale of two characters who start out digging into their past...

only to find they've unearthed their present.
