It looks like things could hardly be better for the just over 40-year-old artist Belmonte. His male nudes are selling well, good-looking women are vying for a date and preparations for his big exhibition at the National Museum of Montevideo are in full swing. Belmonte's fascination with male bodies is a reflection of deep yearning and despair. While Belmonte's mind is occupied by his ex-wife's pregnancy, his beloved ten-year-old daughter Celeste, his rock in life, seems to slowly be slipping away from him. Uruguayan director Federico Veiroj is a master of quiet, subtle humour. His wonderful new film BELMONTE explores the secrets of a man who can only express himself through his art.
