This charming Chilean caper sends 83-year-old widow Sergio into the world of a retirement home, where he becomes increasingly involved in the lives of the residents.
At 83 years old, Sergio becomes a first-time spy, and the hero of Maite Alberdi’s charming Chilean caper, The Mole Agent. His mission is to infiltrate a retirement home where the client fears her mother is being mistreated. But once undercover, Sergio becomes distracted by something much more important to him than the task at hand, as he gets better aquainted with the home’s elderly residents.
This delightful, Oscar-nominated doc begins as comical spy movie, but becomes a unique meditation on compassion and loneliness that will infiltrate your heart and never let go.
