In 2009, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Gerard Martinez (Ricky
Wayne) went into an art museum in Tampa Florida and shot dead ten
completely random people before killing himself. Now why would he do such
Rewind to the first Iraq war, when Martinez wrote his Pulitzer
Prize winning article revealing war crimes of the Bush sr-administration
in 1991. Later, while working undercover in Iraq, Martinez was taken
hostage by Kurdish rebels - but freed by a soldier who seemed to be
impervious to bullets ... and whom he later traced down to the obscure
World War II comicbook hero Mon Protecteur. Mon Protecteur would
quite simply save innocent soldiers from the crossfire, using his ability
to not die to save them. As a comicbook, Mon Protecteur failed to catch on
because he saved soldiers regardless of their nationality ... but several
soldiers from around the world, mostly those who have never even heard of
the character, claim to have been saved by a guy just like him.
the investigative journalist that he is, Martinez traces the story of the
soldier who saves other soldiers back to ancient times, to Ancient Egypt,
the Bible (and especially the shunned book of Enoch) and so on and so
forth, and it all comes down to the story of an angel who was expelled by
God because he cared for the humans too much. Somehow Martinez manages to
track this angel all the way to modern times, and eventually, he stands
face-to-face with his saviour from Iraq, a certain Delsin (Emilio Roso), a
man in his 30's suffering from depression because his alleged wife (Jamie
Tingen), a woman in her 80's, is dying from terminal cancer. Having lived
forever (as he claims at least), he has seen too many of those he loved
die, and now he has turned his back on mankind and ... but Martinez knows
a way out, a mirror on display in a Tampa art museum that might give
Delsin aka Mon Protecteur back his full scale of angelic powers - and yup,
it's that Tampa art museum ...
Who is Delsin?, despite
not being a comedy or being intended as one, is great fun, fun because of
the way it's made. Basically, Who is Delsin? tries to come across
as a documentary, being made up in equal part of talking head footage, a
very weirdly concocted factual background rooted in forced cultural
relations, conspiracy theories and the like, and alleged "found
footage" - pretty much what your typical mockumentary would be made
of, right? But Who is Delsin? goes one step further inasmuch as
I've heard even more far-fetched and less coherent mumbo jumbo in some
actual "documentaries" and because the film makes an effort to
remain plausible throughout. Now add to this that the film is structured
like a thriller and has all the proper mystery elements in place
throughout, and you've got yourself a pretty interesting movie!
