"[A] delightful character study...[that] builds to a poetic finale enmeshed in emotional authenticity." —Eric Kohn, IndieWire
"[The Mole Agent] succeeds with its tenderness, while vividly reminding us how easily society can forget its elders...But thankfully there’s kind people like Sergio, and the sense that friendship knows no age." —Nick Allen, RogerEbert.com
Sergio is a Chilean spy. Sort of. At least, he is offered the role of one after a casting session organized by Detective Romulo, a private investigator who needs a credible mole to infiltrate a retirement home. Romulo’s client, the concerned daughter of a resident, suspects her mother is being abused and hires him to find out what is really happening. 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. Chile's Official Submission to the Oscars and nominated for Best Documentary Feature. Note adapted from Sundance Institute.
