What is El Conde About? 

The movie is not historically accurate. Of course, when vampires come into the storyline, it is hard to stay connected with the truth.

It revolves around a dictator, Augusto Pinochet, who grew up as an aristocrat in France. He lived there as a vampire, sucking the blood of virgin women and maintaining his highly esteemed social status.

However, after two and a half decades, Pinochet decided to bring an end to his unbearable eternal existence. He could no longer bear the weight of being remembered as a thief by the world. These thoughts led him to renounce all his privileges.

The film is presented in black and white, and the haunting setting of Pinochet’s mansion at the Southern Tip of Chile adds to the eerie atmosphere. His family, especially his children, witnessed a drastic transformation in their father. Soon Pinochet realises that he has made accounting errors all along, leading him to get help from the services of a female accountant. Her character plays a pivotal role in truly understanding the film’s undertones. Through her, we delve deeper into Pinochet’s dictatorship and mindset. She might also become the reason for his downfall!
