“Hilarious! Each carefully wrought jewel of story is more delicious and outrageous and hilarious than the last” so says ANNE THOMPSON INDIEWIRE
WINNER: National Board of Review Best Foreign Language Film
Inequality, injustice and the demands of the world we live in cause stress and depression for many people. Some of them, however, explode. This is a movie about those people. Vulnerable in the face of a reality that shifts and suddenly turns unpredictable, the characters of Wild Tales cross the thin line that divides civilization and barbarism. A lover’s betrayal, a return to the repressed past and the violence woven into everyday encounters drive the characters to madness as they cede to the undeniable pleasure of losing control. (C) Sony Classics

 A collection of six vignettes all connected by themes of victimhood and vengeance, and spring-loaded with ironic twist endings worthy of O. Henry, the film feels like Pulp Fiction filtered through the baroque pop sensibility of Pedro Almodóvar.

(Argentina / 2010 / wr/dir by Juan Jose Campanella)
ACADEMY AWARD WINNER: BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM
This poignant thriller interweaves past and present, the personal and the political, to tell the story of a former Buenos Aires criminal investigator who is recently retired, but not at peace
Benjamin Espósito (Ricardo Darin) decides to write a novel based on a twenty-five year old unresolved rape and murder case, which haunts him. Looking for closure, he shares his plans with Irene (Soledad Villamil), the beautiful and unattainable judge and former colleague he has secretly been in love with for years. His search for the truth during his initial involvement with the case put him at the center of a judicial nightmare and in the crosshairs of the repressive secret police. And years later, the heinous crime is still testing the limits of a man seeking justice and personal fulfillment. In Spanish with subtitles.
R / 127 mins.
