The Argentinian film Wild Tales displays perhaps a deeper than normal link with its producer, Almodóvar. Of course, it could just be a coincidence, but the way director Damián Szifron uses black humour to provide reflections on the world, on life and on death reveals him to be a spiritual cousin of Pedro Almodóvar. The film was a roaring success not only in the Spanish-speaking world, earning recognition - including an Oscar nomination - and various awards and prizes all over the world. So, what is its strength? Maybe that it shows how normal human situations, trifling everyday grievances and conflicts can, with a single tiny push, be transformed into wild, simultaneously bloody and humorous dramas. The seizing of a moment, when general suffering and perceived slights cause pain that is so agonising it cannot be healed, and that it is hard to give a rational answer to. A crazy diagnosis from a no less crazy world.
The screening takes place in cooperation with the Spanish Embassy.
