Take part in a free live stream bilingual Q&A to discuss “The Weasels’ Tale” on Sunday, December 13 at 5 pm EST/2 pm PST, with Oscar-winning director Juan José Campanella and legendary actress Graciela Borges, moderated by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker and film programmer Robert Rosenberg. Registration is required for this free Zoom event (sign in from anywhere in the world). Click here to register.

From Juan José Campanella, the director of the Oscar Award-winning The Secret in Their Eyes, comes The Weasels’ Tale (El cuento de las comadrejas), a comedic thriller that stars a bumper crop of well-known older Argentine actors. The film is the story of a group of four long-time friends, including a used-to-be-famous actress, her now disabled husband and an actor as well, who she eclipsed, and the sharp-tongued screenwriter and director of her greatest hits.  Their coexistence is menaced by a young couple who, feigning to be lost, slowly insinuate themselves into their lives. It’s Sunset Boulevard meets The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, with a Latin twist. Financial gain, seduction, betrayal, and memories run amok are the elements that create the recipe for this delightful game of cat…and weasel.

Reviews

“Old-fashioned fare with an up-to-date edge…enjoyably over-the-top.” -The Hollywood Reporter

“A delicious metacinematic black comedy.” -El Mundo

“An homage to the golden age of Argentine cinema…with the irony, snappy retorts and humor of Campanella’s filmmaking.”-Clarín
