Zama, an officer of the Spanish Crown born in colonial South America, hopes for a letter from the King granting him a transfer from the town where he is stagnating to a better place.  As he waits, he is forced to submissively accept every task entrusted to him by a succession of Governors. Years go by and the letter from the King never arrives. When Zama realizes everything is lost, he joins a party of soldiers to pursue a dangerous bandit. 115 minutes. Spanish with English subtitles. 

“Beautiful, hypnotic, mysterious and elliptical...”
– Manohla Dargis, The New York Times
