THE GERMAN DOCTOR
WAKOLDA
2013, Samuel Goldwyn Films, 93 min, Argentina, Dir: Lucía Puenzo

As WWII ground to a close, many Nazis fled Germany for South America; the notorious Josef Mengele hid with a family in Bariloche, Argentina, in writer-director Lucía Puenzo’s fictionalized thriller. Àlex Brendemühl is chilling as the German doctor, who offers to treat underdeveloped Lilith (Florencia Bado) before the trusting girl’s parents realize who he is. This impressively crafted and subtle film was an Un Certain Regard nominee at the Cannes Film Festival. In Spanish, German, and Hebrew with English subtitles.


HOLD UP!
¡ATRACO!
2012, 112 min, Argentina, Dir: Eduard Cortés

This entertaining heist picture is based on a real-life robbery that took place in Spain in the mid-1950s. When the wife of Spanish dictator Francisco Franco sets her eye on jewels that once belonged to the late Eva Perón (of Evita fame), two Argentine loyalists (Guillermo Francella and Nicolás Cabré) decide to steal them first. Director Cortés (THE PELAVOS) deftly polishes the comic, romantic and serious facets of this crowd-pleasing gem. “Smartly written, energetically executed and notably well cast down to the smallest of roles.” - Neil Young, The Hollywood Reporter In Spanish with English subtitles.
