MR. KAPLAN (Uruguay | 2014 | 98m | Spanish)

In this eminently likeable, droll comedy, Jacob Kaplan lives an ordinary life in Montevideo. Like many of his Jewish friends, Jacob fled Europe for South America during World War II. About to turn 76, he’s become rather grumpy and restless. Adventure calls, however, when he suspects a mysterious German beach bar owner might be a runaway Nazi. Setting himself on a secret mission, Kaplan recruits Contreras, a more loyal than honest former police officer, to help him investigate. The opening night film of the BFI London Film Festival, this entertaining black comedy expertly distills a potent mixture of emotional depth and deadpan comedy.
