MY TIME WILL COME (CUANDO ME TOQUE A MI)

Directed by Víctor Arregui
Ecuador, 2008, 90 minutes, Narrative
Spanish with English subtitles
Cast: Manuel Calisto Sánchez, Ramiro Logroño, Randi Kraup, Juan Martín Cueva

A predawn murder sets in motion a series of interlocking tragedies that eventually find their way to the city morgue’s brooding Dr. Arturo Fernandez. Physically and emotionally isolated from the world around him, Arturo develops an oddly intimate relationship with the personal lives of his cases, gradually forcing him to confront his connection to the living, and the dead. Adapted from the novel De Que Nada Se Sabe, director Víctor Arregui’s serpentine tale is a dark but sympathetic portrait of one man’s solitude set against a richly textured rendering of Quito, Ecuador’s capital city.
