Description:
A thriller, set in the world of private banking, a rarefied milieu of corruption and colonial privilege.

Yvan De Wiel, a private banker from Geneva, is going to Argentina in the midst of a dictatorship to replace his partner, the object of the most worrying rumours, who disappeared overnight. Between hushed lounges, swimming pools and gardens under surveillance, a remote duel takes place between the two bankers who, despite different methods, are the accomplices of a discreet and merciless form of colonization.

"The film is, first and foremost, a thriller, and therefore, the story is the most important thing. But I also wanted to describe this upper class through their behaviour. It's shown in the way they smoke, but also how they call the waiter to order a drink, or how they move within a space and occupy it. All of these details describe a certain relationship with the world, and I was meticulous with them, although I am not a perfectionist, particularly. It was important because the details have a political meaning." (Andreas Fontana)
