Juan Carlos Rivas in La León

La León

2007 NR

On a remote Argentinean island, brutish ferry captain Turu (Daniel Valenzuela) casts a scornful eye on a group of illegal Paraguayan loggers and the gay local harvester Alvaro (Jorge Román) whom he suspects of aiding them. But deeper conflicts lurk beneath Turu's self-inflated exterior in this sensitive and sometimes haunting drama, which features gorgeous black-and-white cinematography of the jungle.
