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.



The Secret in Their Eyes (Spanish: El secreto de sus ojos) is a 2009 Argentine crime thriller directed by Juan José Campanella from a screenplay by Eduardo Sacheri and Campanella based on Sacheri’s novel La Pregunta de Sus Ojos (The Question in Their Eyes). Ricardo Darín and Soledad Villamil star in a joint production of Argentine and Spanish companies.[2]

The film won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film at the 82nd Academy Awards, making Argentina the first country in Latin America to win it twice (having already won for The Official Story in 1985).[3][4] This happened just three weeks after being awarded the Goya Award for Best Spanish Language Foreign Film of 2009 (the Goya Awards are the Spanish equivalent of the American Academy Awards).[5] As of 2010 it has become the second biggest box office success in Argentine film history, only surpassed by Leonardo Favio‘s 1975 classic Nazareno Cruz y el lobo (Nazareno Cruz and the Wolf).[6]
