Everybody Has a Plan. Pedro is a beekeeper living deep in the Tigre, a backwater province of Buenos Aires that lies on the Paraná Delta. He is in poor health and, after being drawn into a kidnapping attempt, he has become wary of his associates. He escapes to the city to see his twin brother Agustín, who has made a success of himself as a doctor. Yet Agustín is facing crises of his own, and Pedro’s arrival presents an opportunity for him to escape his own circumstances. The choice Agustín makes leads him back to the Delta where he spent his youth, and to fateful confrontations. Ana Piterbarg’s debut feature is an engrossing and distinctive modern noir that evolves amidst the unfamiliar, unsettling environment of Argentine swamplands. Viggo Mortensen, playing the roles of the twin brothers, delivers electrifying performances, cementing his reputation as one of the most daring screen actors working today.
