Crazy Credits

In the opening credits of the film, each actor is identified and accompanied by the image of a wild animal. In the case of the director (Szifrón), he chose a fox, the reason is not only because he is red haired: "The fox was an animal that my dad really liked, he always saw foxes documentaries, I think that's why I chose it..."

Modern rage + black comedy
25 August 2014 | by dardo766See all my reviews

Mixing modern rage with black comedy this collection of shorts rises above expectations to become one of the best and funniest movies from Argentina along with The Secret In Their Eyes and El Aura, and probably the most accessible for international audiences

Six unrelated stories that share a common theme of revenge are shown back to back, and not edited back and forward like it's usual with these kind of movie, some of them are better than others: the opener, the road rage incident, the hit and run, and the wedding stand out, while the more conventional and predictable "Bombita" and "The Rats" still entertain thanks to superb writing and directing

There's a few annoying problems with logical plot holes like why would the rich yuppie go out of his way to put the damaged spare tired in his trunk (and thus leaving it open) when running for his life and factual errors like on the wedding episode the bride's threats about this husband's companies are meaningless because in Argentina possessions are considered marriage goods ("bienes gananciales") only if the are acquire during the marriage and not before like the screen husband's companies, and like these are others but among such high quality stuff glaring mistakes like these are more evident

highly recommended
