Willem Dafoe stars in an eerily beautiful, Mexico-set film about life, art and death.
Director: Daniel Graham
Cast includes: Willem Dafoe, Irene Azuela
84 Mins / 2019 / Germany | Mexico, Some Subtitles
Willem Dafoe stars as a musicologist, who, grieving over the demise of his father settles in a remote Mexican village. Whilst there, he tries to reconstruct an early 20th century symphony by a Norwegian composer, and gets drawn into investigating the disappearance of a woman from the village.
Opus Zero is highly ambitious in terms of its philosophical ambitions. With fine performances, this is a film that charms with its small town ethos, spiritual yearning and its blackly comic elements that mix with the mystical. As Dafoe switches eagerly between smaller, international fare and larger blockbuster projects this work may best be appreciated as one of many fascinating detours this tremendous talent has made along his career path. He leads a cast that includes Mexican thesps Irene Azuela, Cassandra Ciangherotti and Brontis Jodorowsky.
