After refusing prestigious engagements all over the world, Mr. Mantovani, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, accepts an invitation to visit his humble hometown in Argentina, which has been the inspiration for all of his books. But while he enjoys connections with some of his fellow countrymen, the irreconcilable differences with others prove very dangerous indeed. Despite, or perhaps because of, his arrogance and disdain, Mantovani is a hugely likeable and frequently hilarious anti-hero. The film is itself the worthy winner of multiple prestigious international awards: a highly enjoyable and perfectly pitched comedy that deftly skewers socially awkward situations with razor-sharp wit.
