Relatos Salvajes/Wild Tales

Have you ever watched a movie trailer and realized you still know nothing more about the film other than the title? Well, here you go! Next week the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) sweeps through Toronto and the Argentine/Spanish film, Wild Tales, is getting a lot of positive reaction. I’m off to see it at the Elgin on Tuesday — hope it lives up to the hype.

According to TIFF’s description:

Wild Tales is also a portrait of contemporary Argentina: a society riddled with corruption, hampered by bureaucracy, and bogged down by tradition. Szifron’s film, by breaking down taboos and allowing its characters to say “fuck it all,” provides a cathartic release from the pressures of modern-day living — a release that provokes unrestrained, double-over-in-your-seat laughter.

Sidewalls

I watched this Argentine movie called Sidewalls on Netflix this past weekend. It tells the story of Martín and Mariana, two slightly damaged people who live in buildings opposite one another. While they often don’t notice each other, separation might be the very thing that brings them together. I love movies that explore loneliness. It was cute, so watch it when you get the chance.
