MY MASTERPIECE
MI OBRA MAESTRA
2018, 100 min, Argentina, Dir: Gastón Duprat

This wonderfully entertaining look at friendship pairs cranky, past-his-prime painter Renzo Nervi (Luis Brandoni) with his longtime dealer, Arturo Silva (Guillermo Francella), who is quite willing to cut ethical corners to keep his gallery running - even if it involves murder. Screenwriter Andres Duprat (the director’s brother and frequent collaborator) clearly knows the art world well and Cristina Nigro’s production design is fittingly eye-catching. “The actors are clearly having a ball. … The chemistry between the two men is completely believable, with their long-term relationship often complicated by matters of art and commerce.” - Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter.


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.


BETIBÚ
2014, Latido, 100 min, Argentina, Dir: Miguel Cohan

When a wealthy businessman is found murdered in his home, the local newspaper puts three writers on the case – a jaded veteran reporter (Daniel Fanego), a brash new arrival on the crime beat and famed mystery novelist Nurit “Betibú” Iscar (an excellent Mercedes Morán) – who unearth secrets buried for decades as they follow the trail of clues. Writer-director Cohan’s complex characters and sharp dialog keep this thriller moving at the snappy pace of a vintage film noir. In Spanish with English subtitles
