THE DISTINGUISHED CITIZEN
EL CIUDADANO ILUSTRE
2016, 118 min, Argentina/Spain, Dir: Gastón Duprat, Mariano Cohn

Writer Daniel Mantovani (Oscar Martínez) left Argentina decades ago but still draws upon memories of his hometown for his books. After he wins the Nobel Prize, Daniel is invited to return to the place of his birth to accept a “Distinguished Citizen” award … and gets to see how far the little village has diverged from the fictional version he’s created of it. A laugh-filled look at how art and celebrity transform our lives.
