The Mole Agent

It's never too late to become a spy

Sergio is a Chilean spy. Sort of. After a casting session organized by a private investigator, he’s hired to infiltrate a retirement home to find out whether one of the residents is being abused.
However, Sergio is 83, not 007, and not an easy trainee when it comes to technology and spying techniques. But he is a keen student, looking for ways to keep busy after recently losing his wife. What better distraction than working under cover?

Poster for the Chilean doc The Mole AgentWhile gathering intelligence, Sergio grows close to several residents (most of whom are women, and very happy to see a new man at the home) and realizes that the truth beneath the surface is not what anyone had suspected.

Maite Alberdi’s The Mole Agent is a stylish combination of an observational documentary and a spy movie, with sleek camerawork and wonderfully watchable characters. It’s a unique meditation on compassion and loneliness that will infiltrate your heart and never let go.
