Two films from the Chilean director, Pablo Larraín. 'Post Mortem' (2010) is set in 1973 during the last days of the rule of soon-to-be-overthrown President Salvador Allende.
Alfredo Castro stars as Mario, a solitary morgue employee whose obsession with his next-door neighbour, cabaret dancer Nancy Puelma (Antonia Zegers), unfolds against the backdrop of a nation on the verge of political and economic collapse. 'Tony Manero' (2008) is a crime drama set in late 1970s Chile during the early years of the dictatorship of General Augusto Pinochet.
Raul Peralta (Alfredo Castro), a middle-aged Santiago low-life, becomes obsessed with impersonating Tony Manero, the character played by John Travolta in the hit film 'Saturday Night Fever'.
When the national television channel announces a contest for the best impersonation of Tony Manero's dance moves, Raul's obsession reaches new heights and he is driven to commit a series of increasingly brutal crimes to ensure his success.
