Director: Damián Szifrón. Cast: Darío Grandinetti, María Marull, Mónica Villa, Ricardo Darín. 122 min. Rated R. Argentina/Spain. Comedy/Drama/Thriller.
Six 10-30 minute bizarre "tales" told in sequence, with the common notion of how fate ultimately catches up with you (and also, the strange presence of a fire extinguisher in most of them). Together with The Secret in Their Eyes and The Headless Woman, curious how Argentinian cinema is obsessed with the concept of fate - as though they're communally guilty of some dark deeds in their past. The first few tales are magnificently structured and engrossing, but the stories lose steam towards the end, with the last one (the wedding party), although satirical, completely out of touch with reality.
