We thought it would be opportune to show this highly acclaimed film on Halloween…It was  waiting for the right night to be viewed and discussed …”Wild tales” (Relatos Salvajes)  is a 2014 Argentine black comedy anthology film composed of six standalone shorts, all written and directed by Damián Szifron, united by a common theme of violence and vengeance  in  surreal situations that are played with gusto by culturally incorrect characters…

It stars an ensemble cast consisting of Ricardo Darín, Oscar Martínez, Leonardo Sbaraglia, Érica Rivas, Rita Cortese, Julieta Zylberberg, and Darío Grandinetti, and was co-produced by Agustín Almodóvar and Pedro Almodóvar. The film’s musical score was composed by Gustavo Santaolalla. It was nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 87th Academy Awards, won the Best Film Not in the English Language at the 69th British Academy Film Awards, and also won the Best Ibero-American Film at the 2nd Platino Awards.
