Uruguay's official entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the 87th Academy Awards. Jacob Kaplan (Héctor Noguera), one of many Jews who fled Europe for South American during World War II, lives an ordinary life in Uruguay. At almost 76, he's become fed up with his community and family's lack of interest in its own heritage. "Mr. Kaplan" is a hilarious, crowd-pleasing black comedy revolving around a Jewish retiree who is convinced the shy, old German owner of a local seafront restaurant is in fact a former Nazi.
Starring Héctor Noguera, Néstor Guzzini, Rolf Becker
