Octubre, the first feature film from brothers Daniel and Diego Vega, is a deadpan dark comedy incorporating influences ranging from Jim Jarmusch and Aki Kaurismaki to Robert Bresson, and winner of the Jury Prize at Cannes Film Festival-Un Certain Regard. October is the "purple month" in Lima, when the grey city's somber tones give way to processions celebrating the Lord of Miracles. Hope is reborn among the throngs of devotees who light candles and follow the processions, each in search of their own miracle. Tucked away in one of the Lima's modest flats lives Clemente, a small time loan shark with a penchant for reckless hookers, grave solitude, money lending and nothing else. Stuck in a shallow routine, Clemente lacks any real emotional connection to anyone. People, in turn, refer to him not by name, but as "the pawnbroker's son." Whether it's a slippery counterfeiter, an amiable thief or a desperate neighbor, Clemente is sensitive only to what their business might bring him.
