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.
“A collection of delicious, horrible, scary and scabrous stories from Argentina (...) Szifrón brings off a very difficult trick: making something genuinely funny and genuinely scary at the same time.”
“The title ain't no lie (...) a mischievously blunt response to a culture of inescapable corruption, economic and social inequality and injustice.”
“A wickedly delightful compendium of six standalone shorts united by a theme of vengeance (...) the overall enjoyment rarely flags.”
“Ideally structured and often wickedly dark.”
