After fleeing Europe for Uruguay during WWII, Jacob Kaplan built a quiet life. Now 76, he begins to question his worth. After learning of a mysterious German prowling the shores of a nearby beach, he becomes convinced that he’s found a Nazi in hiding and plans to expose him. Expertly distilling a potent mixture of emotional depth and deadpan comedy, Mr. Kaplan is a vivacious meditation on family, aging, and the drive for significance.
  • A dark and philosophical comedy about aging without a cause.
  • Director Alvaro Brechner previous works was selected at the Cannes Critic’s week in 2009.
  • MR KAPLAN was selected at the Biarritz International Festival of Latin American Cinema, the Chicago International film Festival and the Monte-Carlo Comedy Film Festival.
  • 7 awards at the Uruguayan Film Critics Association.
  • Gainsbourg’s “SS in Uruguay” is used in the opening and closing credits. Good taste !
  • “[Alvaro] Brechner and co-editor Nacho Ruiz Capillas know just when to cut a shot or scene to hit the sweet spots and milk maximum comedy from the script’s ripe situational humor.” THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
