Why do they all look for Castro? We don’t know, but after him go Samuel, Willie, Rebeca Thompson, and at a certain distance, Acuña. What’s certain is that Castro left the Capital with Celia, and just flees, and thinks that if he can get a job, that would damage love. Castro (the character) has something Arlt-like, even if he’s faster with getaways than with inventions, and only thinks of how to survive without being drowned. Castro (the film) is a film about the speed of cinema, and that’s why it turns chases and lockups into two of its joyful constants, and keeps leaving clues (it’s the same thing whether they’re false or true) that force the audience to adopt that speed taking the risk of being left way behind.
