Trailer for The Dead Man and Being Happy.
Santos (José Sacristán), an aging hit man diagnosed with cancer, reneges on a job he’s been paid for and leaves Buenos Aires with a stock of morphine to manage his pain. A much younger woman, Érika, jumps in his car at a gas station and tags along; their journey takes them to a series of fascinating, idiosyncratic locales throughout Argentina, as Santos tries to remember the names of all the people he has killed. Érika is estranged from her family since an affair with her father’s cousin came to light on the eve of her wedding; a visit to her family estate builds to a romantic payoff and a dramatic showdown.
