An interesting, but not totally satisfactory, movie
28 July 2011 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

I did not know anything about the film Rabia before watching it, but during the initial credits, the name of the director, Sebastián Cordero, sounded familiar to me. After watching the movie, I visited the IMDb and I found out that his previous movie was the excellent Crónicas, whose skilled balance of fiction and Ecuadorian reality served for portraying an incisive message about the media and the manipulation of the masses. Unfortunately, Rabia does not have the same ambitious intentions nor reaches the same narrative level, even though the screenplay is interesting and brings a good analogy about the situation of the immigrants in Spain (and in the whole world, better said).

The main characters from Rabia are two immigrants who simultaneously feel excluded and affected by the ups and downs from a dysfunctional society (or family) which tends to ignore them whenever they are not abusing from them in order to satisfy particular objectives. However, that message is wrapped into a thriller which is not always credible and shows some problems in its structure. The screenplay from Rabia is based on a book written by Sergio Bizzio, and it is probable that the adaptation lost important aspects which feel like holes in the narrative from the movie. Besides, the screenplay concludes on a sentimental note which does not feel enough justified.

Anyway, Rabia kept me entertained, mainly thanks to Cordero's direction, which shows a firm vision, fluid camera movements which make us ubiquitous witnesses of the drama, and which could also extract solid performances from the whole cast. I think that that makes Rabia worthy of a moderate recommendation, and despite the fact that it did not leave me totally satisfied, I look forward to watching Cordero's following projects.
