El juego de arcibel

El juego de Arcibel (English: Arcibel's Game), is a 2003 Argentine drama film co-written and directed by Alberto Lecchi and starring Darío Grandinetti and Diego Torres, among others.


1967: in Miranda, an imaginary Latin American country, ruled by the dictator General Abalorio, Arcibel Alegría (Darío Grandinetti), a journalist who writes articles about chess is taken to jail as political prisoner due to a mixed-up schedule of the newspaper he works for. Arcibel, a non-political, rather solitary person, separated, and father of a two-year-old girl, will get to know a new reality he's never heard of, from inside the jail.
