    • Synopsis
    • It's been seven years since Peruvian crime novelist Edo Celeste's fiancée Celia vanished without a trace. On the anniversary of her disappearance, as Celeste (Salvador del Solar) is finishing what is to be the last of his popular Felipe Aranda detective novels, the writer receives a summons from Mara (Angie Cepeda), whose ex-husband died the same day that Celia went missing. Mara gives Celeste an envelope containing photographs that provides a long-sought-after clue as to the whereabouts of his lost love. In this mind-bending mystery that pays homage to the reality-twisting fictions of Jorge Luis Borges and Julio Cortázar, award-winning director Javier Fuentes-León fuses the chaos of Lima’s smoggy city streets and the stark reality of its economic disparity with the atmospheric trappings of the Hollywood noir. The Vanished Elephant uses the framework of a criminal procedural to craft a fascinating reflection on art, obsession, and loss.
