"I was attracted to Argentina because there had been this literary
tradition there, not only in Argentina with (Jorge Luis) Borges and
(Julio) Cortázar, but also in Peru and in Chile with Roberto Bolano,
who was someone I was reading four or five years ago who no one had
heard of, then all of a sudden this year his work emerged in America
as well. I guess it got translated. He had died. I went to Argentina
in search of learning something."


“Tetro” is visionary director Francis Ford Coppola’s first original
screenplay since “The Conversation” nearly four decades ago and it’s
his most personal film yet. Arising from memories and emotions from
his early life, though totally fictional, it is the bittersweet story
of two brothers, of family lost and found, and the conflicts,
disturbing secrets and complex dynamics within a highly creative
Argentine-Italian family. The film stars Vincent Gallo, Alden
Ehrenreich, Francesca de Sapio, Maribel Verdu, and Klaus Maria

to lista Bolano
I definetely recommend to you to watch more Argentinian Cinema, starting for "Hombre mirando al sudeste", the movie from which K-pax was ripped of.
