Argentina's official entry for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar earlier this year is a historical drama based on Lucia Puenzo's novel of the same name. Porcelain doll maker Enzo (Diego Peretti) and his wife Eva (Natalia Oreiro) open a boarding house in 1960 Patagonia and they are delighted to welcome a doctor as the first guest. The medic turns out to be Josef Mengele (Alex Brendemuhl), the Nazi collaborator, who famously conducted experiments in human genetics as part of Hitler's plan to engineer a master race. Mengele becomes transfixed by Enzo and Eva, who are expecting twins, and by the couple's young daughter Lilith (Florencia Bado), who is small for her age. Hidden from the people who want him to answer for his crimes, Mengele senses an opportunity to continue his work by using the family members as guinea pigs for his research and treatments.
