Embajada en Estados Unidos

“The Summit” at the Washington, DC International Film Festival

Argentine president Hernán Blanco (Ricardo Darín, in a riveting performance) faces the most important meeting of his career, a summit of Latin American leaders at a posh snowbound resort in the Chilean Andes to form "the first multinational, state-owned company" to better compete with the hated US in the petroleum industry. Blanco is unexpectedly plunged into an intense personal crisis involving his daughter. Now in steps an uninvited, cheerful bully of a Yankee diplomat (Christian Slater) to remind Blanco who really calls the shots in this hemisphere. The widely respected Blanco maneuvers with his colleagues, who are old pals on the surface but are ready to stab each other in the back at any moment. In this superbly crafted suspense with Godfather-like overtones, who is the real Machiavelli? A quietly spellbinding score by the incomparable Alberto Iglesias only deepens the atmosphere.—Miguel Pendás
