Argentinean actor Ricardo Darin confirms he will take part of the cast in the next film by Brazilian film director Walter Salles, a project that will take place in Patagonia and Chile.
“I’m infatuated by Walter Salles. I look like a 15 years old girl. “
Ricardo Darin, is at the moment in Madrid promoting his latest comedy “A Chinese Tale, “ and has shown his impatience to work with Brazilian film director Walter Salles (“Central Station”, ”Motorcycle Diaries”).
The project, which has been postponed several months because of the death of Oskar Kramer producer, (more…)
Argentina: Sector seeks stories. Emphasis on auteur pics over traditional genres limits local industry.
In the late 1990s, a flood of director-driven films catapulted Argentina onto center stage at international festivals with works such as Pablo Trapero’s “Crane World” and Adrian Caetano‘s “Pizza, Beer, Cigarettes.” Today, that stream continues with new directors and 100 features a year, making Argentina the busiest in Latin America.
However, despite the volume, few films are making a splash in a country that has produced some of the world’s best-regarded art film practitioners of late, including Martin Rejtman and Lisandro Alonso.

An ambulance-chasing lawyer named Sosa (Ricardo Darín) and a twenty-something emergency room doctor, Luján (Martina Gusman), meet among the twisted carnage of a car crash. He’s caught up in shady insurance schemes but anxious to find a way to come clean; she’s ambitious and capable, but takes the edge off of sleep deprivation and adrenaline jitters with a regular fix. In Pablo Trapero‘s electrifying thriller neither conscience nor love comes without cost, and corruption casts an omnipresent shadow. Upon its debut at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival, Twitch’s Todd Brown wrote, ”Trapero serves notice here that he is one of the very best (more…)
With so few features from outside of the United States and Europe securing a theatrical release in this country, it is vital that festivals continue to showcase pictures from Latin America, Asia and Africa. No British event is as committed to world cinema as the BFI London Film Festival and the 54th selection is typically diverse and distinguished.
From Quebec to Patagonia, the contribution from the Americas is particularly strong this year, with Xavier Dolan’s Heartbeats confirming the good impression that he made at the tender age of 21 with How I Killed My Mother (2009). Indeed, he also takes the lead in this Montreal variation on François Truffaut’s Jules et Jim (1961), as he competes with gal pal Monia Chokri for the affections of new-in-town Niels Schneider. Seething with catty lines and camply hip visuals that owe as much to Wong Kar-wai, François Ozon and Christophe Honoré as the nouvelle vague, this achingly stylish paean to unrequited lust peppers the action with vox pops to emphasise its dramatic points. However, it’s the fond rivalry between Dolan and Chokri (that eventually brings them to blows during a stay in the (more…)

La Raza Galeria Posada‘s canary yellow walls set a vibrant tone Thursday for the gallery’s latest offering in a Latin cinema series.
“This series is about highlighting the films that are coming out of Portuguese- and Spanish- speaking countries,” said Michael Collett, the gallery’s education manager.
“We want to give a broader perspective to Sacramentans that not everyone who speaks Spanish is Mexican,” he continued. “There’s a whole Spanish-speaking world out there and those people have issues similar to us here in the States.”
The series is a part of the New Latin American Film Series held Thursdays at 7 p.m. in July.
Thursday featured the Argentinean film “El Secreto de su Ojos” (The Secret in Their Eyes), which won the Oscar this year for Best Foreign Language Film. The Mexican film “Arrancame La Vida” (Tear This Heart Out) originally was scheduled, but the change didn’t seem to ruin anyone’s evening.
The film tells the story of retired court investigator. Benjamin Esposito (Ricardo Darin), who has decided to pen his memoir. A series of flashbacks highlights political corruption and Argentina’s crippled justice system against the background of a love affair. (more…)
