Crazy Credits

In the opening credits of the film, each actor is identified and accompanied by the image of a wild animal. In the case of the director (Szifrón), he chose a fox, the reason is not only because he is red haired: "The fox was an animal that my dad really liked, he always saw foxes documentaries, I think that's why I chose it..."

Just Brilliant !
27 August 2014 | by Diego EusaSee all my reviews

6 Stories - 6 masterpieces! They perfectly combine thriller, drama, humor and the common topic is the violence.

Each tale is independent from the other, but all of them have something special that makes you really enjoy.

The situations introduced in each story are actually based on real life, of course the are intentionally exaggerated with a sense of satire and irony that really makes you laugh.

The picture is the best I have seen in an Argentina movie and the music "made ​​in" Santaolalla is sublime.

The actors/actresses are amazing (specially the bride - Erica Rivas) In my opinion it is one of the best non-English Language movies ever.
