THE WEASEL’S TALE
EL CUENTO DE LAS COMADREJAS
2019, 120 min, Argentina/Spain, Dir: Juan José Campanella

Juan José Campanella’s first live-action feature since Oscar winner THE SECRET IN THEIR EYES shows the writer-director to be as adept with comedy as he is with drama. When two fans show up at the mansion where an aging actress (Graciela Borges) resides with her retinue, their flattery masks their real intent - to acquire the property for real estate development. “Enjoyably over-the-top, well-played and in some passages an homage to those acid, preposterous Ealing comedies, WEASEL’S TALE’s script cleverly pits two kinds of actors against one another - traditional movie star vs entrepreneurial whiz kid - to see who comes out on top, and the result is often sharp, funny and never dull.” - Jonathan Holland, The Hollywood Reporter.


AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL
AL FINAL DEL TÚNEL
2016, 120 min, Argentina/Spain, Dir: Rodrigo Grande

In this REAR WINDOW-esque thriller, wheelchair-bound Joaquin (Leonardo Sbaraglia) discovers that a tunnel is being dug under his building in preparation for a bank robbery - and he wants a share of the loot for his silence. Terrific performances from Sbaraglia and Pablo Echarri (as the thieves’ sadistic leader) keep the suspense at fever pitch throughout. “The movie finally feels as sweaty, claustrophobic and nervous as the title implies, staying on just the right side of excess.” - Jonathan Holland, The Hollywood Reporter.
