An affecting portrait of contemporary man.
Richard O’Hara waits in a hotel to sign a contract between the Chinese government and a group of Western pharmaceutical companies that will turn him into a rich man. After his stay in Asia, he receives a strange commission: to find a landscape that appears in an old photo. Obsessed with the image, he will embark on a journey around the planet in the company of a woman named Amanda.
In this vertiginous thriller, where accidents play a key role, vampires are art collectors, and the director David Cronenberg explains the true spirit of the twenty-first century, Ricardo Menéndez Salmón shows his confidence in literary fiction as an instrument for interpreting our world.
