Pisco Movie Night is back with another screening in collaboration with the Embassy of The Argentine Republic Malaysia.
The saying “you can’t go home again” – meaning you can’t recapture the past – gets a witty and sarcastic examination in THE DISTINGUISHED CITIZEN (2016), a Spanish-Argentine comedy about a highly successful Barcelona-based novelist returning to his small Argentinian hometown for the first time in 40 years. ---
Awaiting him at “home” is a medal, an honorary “Distinguished Citizen” title from the mayor, and hundreds of adoring fans. Played by Oscar Martinez, the middle-aged author is a typical eccentric creative snob who claims to despise fame, but seems offended at not being recognized. It’s implied that he accepts the invitation home because he’s in the middle of a creative rut. Over time, he finds both similarities and irreconcilable differences with the people of his hometown. ---
