Today at the Atlanta 25th Annual Latin American Film Festival
October 30, 2010, 8 p.m.
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 film makers in the world today. . . . The complexity of his characters, the technical quality of the film work, his ability to balance intimate emotion with realistic and brutal action sequences, his obvious skill in working with actors . . . Trapero is at the highest level in all of these.“ (2010, Argentina/Chile/France/South Korea, 107 minutes.)
