An Argentinian film in Spanish with sub-titles.
Co-produced by the Almodovars, Wild Tales is an satirical anthology of six standalone short films, stories of revenge and violence: a “riotously entertaining collection of short stories linked by a common theme: people losing their self-control”.
Mark Kermode (The Guardian Film Critic) writes: Damián Szifron’s anthology of OTT tales of revenge (under the “Pedro Almodóvar presents” banner) is a splendidly anarchic portrait of a world on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Here are stories of lives destroyed by parking fines, of road-rage insults escalating into apocalyptic Duel-like confrontations, of white wedding parties descending into something more akin to the final scenes from Carrie – all defined by the sudden and violent breakdown of “polite” behaviour.
