Movie Info

Los Reyes ("The Kings") is the oldest skatepark in the Chilean capital of Santiago. This story is about the real kings here: Football and Chola, two stray dogs that have made their home in this open space full of hurtling skateboards and rowdy teenagers. The energetic Chola loves to play with the balls she finds lying around. She positions them at the edge of the bowls where the skaters show off their tricks and tries to catch them just before they fall down. The older dog, Football, looks on impatiently and barks at Chola until she finally drops the balls. The teenagers around them come from very different, sometimes troubled backgrounds. They each have their own story, which they recount to us in voiceover. In this almost fairy-tale-like film, the phenomenal, dreamlike camerawork centers almost entirely on the subtle interaction between the two dogs, as they play with a ball, a stick, a stone and each other.

Critic Reviews for Los Reyes

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (5)

It's a clever portrait of masculine drift, approached in sly and sidelong fashion: as background to the peaceful days of two happy mammals who never give thought to the approaching and encircling flies.

Los Reyes is a charming, calming film, though it's also somewhat one-note...

August 29, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The directors avoid symbolism or didacticism, and instead immerse us in a sense of life lived at the languid pace of an afternoon daydream.

Low on incidents but high on atmosphere and unassuming charm.

December 5, 2018 | Full Review…

A charmingly roundabout documentary born of curiosity, patience, and no small amount of inventiveness on the part of its authors...

Los Reyes makes for the boldest reinvention of cinematic grammar this year but never feels like an academic exercise because the lovable pooches win us over time and again.
