Synopsis
Uruguayan directors Cesar Chalone and Enrique Fernández co-helm the nutty Spanish-language farce El baño del papa (The Pope's Toilet). The film unfolds in 1988, during Pope John Paul II's visit to Uruguay. While dozens of economically-struggling locals devise plans to turn a buck from the arrival of the papal father - such as baking cakes and wrapping chorizo sausages - only one concocts a scheme to earn a fortune from defecation. Beto, a nickel-and-dime smuggler, reasons that all of those cakes and sausages will be digested rather quickly and that over 50,000 locals will soon be clamoring to use the porcelain bowl. Of course, toilets abound in South America, but Beto sets his public toilet apart by crowning it with an aura of prestige - his will be the only Pope's Toilet in all of Uruguay, and residents, he is certain, will soon be clamoring to use it. Unfortunately, before he can set his scheme in motion, Beto must first locate the most appropriate toilet and make several risky trips across the Brazilian border and back to that end. Then, just as Beto is within arm's reach of success, someone thoughtlessly steals his beloved bicycle - further hampering his mission. Regardless of the complications at hand, however, Beto's determination persists. ~ Nathan Southern, All Movie Guide
