After releasing the crime thriller The Secret in Their Eyes last year, the Argentinean film industry got my attention. So as you could imagine, I became excited when the trailer for the film Carancho showed up at Apple. Add in the presence of the aforementioned movie’s star (Ricardo Darin) along with the fact that they both come from the same country, even if tenuous connections, and I was left with a sense of curiosity.
That first sense is followed by one of bafflement and laughter upon actually watching the trailer. This looks, frankly, stupid, and while I wouldn’t judge the film outright based on roughly two minutes’ worth of material, I can be left with an impression. And as much as I hate to say it, that impression isn’t very good. See it below, or in HD at the link above.
Synopsis: Sosa (Ricardo Darin, The Secret in Their Eyes) is an ambulance-chasing personal injury attorney with questionable ethics. Lujan (Martina Gusman, Lion’s Den) is a young, idealistic country doctor, new to the city. After Lujan and Sosa’s paths repeatedly cross, the two form an unlikely romance that is threatened by Sosa’s turbulent past. With traffic accidents as the number one cause of deaths in Argentina, bodies are currency and a black market strives to get rich from the personal tragedies that literally litter the streets.
What did you think of this trailer? Did you see The Secret in Their Eyes, and were you a fan of that film?
