The ‘El Conde’ Trailer Portrays Chile’s Most Controversial Dictator as a Vampire. The film is presented in black-and-white, emphasizing dialogue and visual language.
The first teaser, poster, and pictures for director Pablo Larran’s satirical horror-comedy El Conde, which will debut at the 80th Venice International Film Festival in September, have been released by Netflix.
El Conde Official Trailer
El Conde, Pablo Larran’s parody based on the days of one of Chile’s most fearsome dictators, has received its debut trailer from Netflix.
Jaime Vadell portrays a politician who secretly happens to be a vampire, consuming the blood of unnoticed victims to stay alive.
However, after 250 years in power, the creature will feel he’s had plenty of the world, forcing him to begin hunting for methods to die.
The world around him will struggle to comprehend what he seeks to achieve because, even if he is disliked by the people he leads, they want to know what caused the rapid change.
According to the trailer, this black-and-white, tongue-in-cheek movie from Chilean director Pablo Larran stars a Pinochet who, along with the 300 human rights violations the real Pinochet was accused of in the twenty years following his coup d’état in 1973, is irritated that people think of him as a thief.
The film was shot in black-and-white, leaving color out to focus on the message and visual language Larran will provide the audience, according to the recently released teaser.
Larran will use Pinochet’s vampire status to investigate the humanity in a character that may be viewed as unearthly. The story’s humorous components will separate itself from the more socially severe message shown in cinemas and on television screens worldwide next month.
The plot of the movie is as follows:
El Conde will be a dark comedy/horror film speculating a parallel universe based on Chile’s recent history.
Augusto Pinochet, a symbol of global fascism, is portrayed as a vampire concealed in a dilapidated home on the continent’s freezing southern point. To keep himself alive, he feeds his thirst for wickedness.
Pinochet has chosen to quit consuming blood and give up the luxury of endless life after two hundred and fifty years of existence. He can no longer face the fact that the rest of the world remembers him as a criminal.
Despite his family’s disappointment and opportunism, he finds new energy to live a life of active and counterrevolutionary enthusiasm through an unexpected connection.
The Cast of El Conde
Marcial Tagle, Gloria Münchmeyer, Catalina Guerra, Amparo Noguera, Diego Muoz, Alfredo Castro, Paula Luchsinger, and Antonia Zegers star alongside Jaime Vadell as Pinochet.
The movie is scheduled to premiere on Netflix on September 15th.
