Movie Info

Following up on his acclaimed 1999 opus Revenge, Andres Wood spins this wild and woolly comedy about sex, greed, and shellfish. Loco is an endangered shellfish found most abundantly in a remote corner of Chile. Resembling a clam, the creature is touted for its aphrodisiac qualities, making it extremely popular among lecherous old men in Japan. Just before the annual harvest, a pair of con artists, Canuto (Emilio Bardi) and Jorge (Luis Dubo), return to their hometown claiming to represent a fictitious Japanese company. Announcing their intention to pay top peso for the entire loco crop, the villagers are soon desperately trying to gather as much of the shellfish as they can. As news of the gold rush leaks out, a band of carpetbagger whores drops in, hoping to cash in on the locals. The cash is placed under the protection of the town's priest/mayor/radio DJ (Luis Margani) who valiantly tries to instill some order in a town increasingly slipping into a carnal quagmire. As Canuto and Jorge are about to switch the cash with counterfeit money, they fall into amorous traps of their own -- Canuto falls in with an old flame named Sonia while Jorge finds his true love. This film was screened at the 2001 Toronto Film Festival. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi
