the imposter

In recent years, some of the best films I’ve seen and enjoyed have been documentaries.

They’ve mostly been music docs, I’m happy to admit, but the latest documentary to grip my attention is a real-life story.

So I don’t give anything away, here’s the Amazon synopsis.

In 1994 a 13-year-old boy disappears without a trace from San Antonio, Texas.

Three and a half years later he is found alive, thousands of miles away in a village in southern Spain with a story of kidnap and torture. His family is overjoyed to bring him home. But all is not quite as it seems.

The boy- bears many of the same distinguishing marks he always had  – but why does he now have a strange accent? Why does he look so different? And why doesn’t the family seem to notice these glaring inconsistencies?

It’s only when an investigator starts asking questions that this strange tale takes an even stranger turn.

‘The Imposter’ was released last Summer and is now available on dvd.

All I can say is, if you get the chance, watch it.

If you’re like me, you’ll be left with more questions than answers.

But you’ll not be disappointed.
