  • The Mute

    2013. Peru/Mexico. Written and directed by Daniel Vega Vidal, Diego Vega Vidal. With Fernando Bacilio, Lidia Rodríguez, Juan Luis Maldonado. Judge Constantino Zegarra has earned his name as an incorruptible stalwart with an impressive conviction rate. Impervious to sob stories and appeals, he has also earned many enemies, any one of whom could be behind a conspiracy that leaves him demoted and—after a bullet strikes him in the neck—mute. Smart and shrewd (a kind of black comedy version of Michael Haneke’s Caché), The Mute is an exciting and exceedingly fresh take on the political thriller. In Spanish; English subtitles. 90 min.
