Trivia

In addition to its dark humor and its sarcastic tone, the original title of the movie resembles Pulp Fiction's spanish translated title: "Tiempos Violentos". Furthermore, the final title card uses a very similar font and colour to the one used in Quentin Tarantino's Movie. See more »

Goofs

When the two protagonists are smoking a marijuana joint in the policeman's car, Silberman is passed the joint and begins to smoke it. He smokes it throughout the majority of the scene, until only about 2 centimeters remain. When he hands the joint back to Diaz at the end of the scene, there is still half a joint remaining.

Riveting. From Beginning to End.
19 July 2015 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

Impeccable production characterizes this jewel of a film. The photography, as realistic as present technique allows it to be, introduces us in intimate contact to this couple --the policeman and his psychoanalyst-- so cozily that we feel we are there with them, following their casual conversation in the car, few minutes into the movie, while looking at a lovingly photographed Buenos Aires on hand picked locations as if we are just seeing a background on an apparently casual route.

The camera movements are awesome. Its smoothness throughout the whole movie makes of every scene a natural happening helped by a precise use of lighting, either for the day scenes or the night time.

What can we say about the director --Damián Szifron-- and his actors? they are a sheer joy in every scene --not only Diego Peretti and Luis Luque, the above mentioned couple of psychoanalyst and patient --every single actor in this movie is role perfect, delivering their lines with a naturalness that was absolutely unknown in the historical Argentinian films. There are many clever lines, in the comedy scenes and in the dark --very dark-- serious moments, specially with that cameo intervention of Gabriela Iscovich --the psychoanalyst wife-- in a hilarious role.

A superbly entertaining film with a bit of everything, comedy, noir, mystery, violence, all done with that Argentinian flavor unique to this country, like that scene in the policeman car, where the three guys are drinking Mate --the Argentinian familiar drink par excellence-- as if drinking Mate in a police car was a natural, everyday situation.

Excellent film from any point of view.
