Critically lauded from San Sebastián to Toronto Film Festivals, this superbly sinister and stylish thriller lays bare the complacency and corruption of pre-coup Argentina, as it grips audiences with intrigue from the first chilling scenes all the way through to its provocative ending.
Argentinian screen heavyweight Dario Grandinetti (Julieta 2016, Wild Tales, Closing Night SFF15) stars as Claudio, a well-known lawyer and pillar of his community in the Granada of 1975, where the unease of the impending coup d’état is already hanging heavy in the air. After a heated altercation with a menacing man at a restaurant, Claudio and his wife Susana will meet the same stranger on their way home; an encounter that starts the lawyer out on an unthinkable road of no-return littered with death, secrets and silences. The assemblage of deceptive appearances and fatal disappearances that follow are perfectly imbued with a deep sense of paranoia to result in a chilling exploration of a country that has lost its moral compass in the midst of social upheaval.
