KÓBLIC
2016, 92 min, Argentina, Dir: Sebastián Borensztein

Director Sebastián Borensztein reunites with his CHINESE TAKE-OUT star Ricardo Darín in this taut thriller. Darin plays the title character, a pilot haunted by memories of “flights of death” that the Argentine dictatorship used to eliminate dissenters. But when he tries to escape his past in a remote Pampas village, Kóblic crosses paths with a corrupt police chief (a thoroughly menacing Oscar Martinez). Co-starring Inma Cuesta.


INSEPARABLES
2016, 108 min, Argentina, Dir: Marcos Carnevale

Writer-director Marcos Carnevale transposes the 2011 film THE INTOUCHABLES from France to Argentina for this appealing dramedy. Oscar Martínez stars as Felipe, a quadriplegic millionaire whose reluctant caregiver (Rodrigo de la Serna) has a lust for life that helps inspire his new patient.


THE DISTINGUISHED CITIZEN
EL CIUDADANO ILUSTRE
2016, 118 min, Argentina/Spain, Dir: Gastón Duprat, Mariano Cohn

Writer Daniel Mantovani (Oscar Martínez) left Argentina decades ago but still draws upon memories of his hometown for his books. After he wins the Nobel Prize, Daniel is invited to return to the place of his birth to accept a “Distinguished Citizen” award … and gets to see how far the little village has diverged from the fictional version he’s created of it. A laugh-filled look at how art and celebrity transform our lives.
