THAT DAY is world renowned filmmaker Raoul Ruiz1s (TIME REGAINED) surrealist black comedy about greed, innocence, and the thin line separating madness from sanity.When Harald, the patriarch of a high society family, can no longer pay the bills, he conspires to bump off his harmlessly mad daughter Livia, the heir to his wife1s vast fortune. To accomplish the deed, Harald arranges for the escape of Emil, a psychotic killer who has been confined in a nearby asylum. But a funny thing happens on the way to Livia1s rendezvous with death: Emil develops a tender protectiveness towards her. Gradually, the pair form an unlikely union as Emil kills the remaining members of the scheming family in their own country estate.
