Wild Tales - Relatos Salvajes

Relatos Salvajes / Wild Tales

Dir. Damian Szifron

Spain, Argentina | 2014 | 122 mins | Spanish with English Subtitles NETHERLANDS PREMIER! Sat 25th October | 20.30 | 10.50 €, concession 8,50 € | Pathé Tuchiski | – Vulnerable before a reality that can suddenly be modified and become unpredictable, the characters of Wild Tales cross the thin line that divides civilization from brutality. A story about love deception, the return of the past, a tragedy, or even the violence contained in an everyday detail, appear themselves to push them towards the abyss, into the undeniable pleasure of losing control. Six hilarious short stories combine to form a macabre tango at the gates of madness in this outrageous comedy about the trials of modern life

The participation of the Almodóvar brothers as producers is no surprise. Wild Tales brings to mind such frantic early El Deseo productions as Labyrinth of Passions and Women On the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown
