If you liked Francesca: The clan (Star +)

Perhaps the best interpretation of Francella: the sinister kidnapper Archimede Puccio, in “El clan”. (Star plus)

In the 1980s, just as democracy was restored in Argentina, many of those who participated in the illegal repression were left without work: they were called “unemployed work” and associated with common crimes. No one was as obvious as Archimede Pucciowhose disturbing performance in this film by Paul Trapperbased on reality, it is perhaps Francella’s best work.

The patriarch of the Puccio family, a bourgeois clan with rugby children, is a former secret service agent who has chosen to devote himself to kidnapping for the purpose of ransom. With a suspense management that borders on horror, the film recounts the events and the imprisonment of the victims in the same house as Puccio, who continued his life as if nothing had happened, in a sort of group madness.

The victims were also middle-class or upper-class people, whom Puccio often lured by using his son Alex, a stellar rugby team, as bait. Between complicity and horror, the character of the young man, played by Peter Lanzani, is also another highlight of the film.

Francella and Lanzani work in the company of Franco Masini, Giselle Motta, Stefania Koessl And Lili Popovich

If you have been affected by extreme weather conditions: I think about the end (Netflix)

Charlie Kaufman, screenwriter of “Do You Want to Be John Malkovich?” and “The Orchid Thief”, directed “I Think About the End”. (Netflix)

Entitled in English I’m thinking of ending thingslike the Canadian novel Iain Reid on which it is based, takes place mainly inside a car going through a snowstorm. with address of Charlie Kaufmanscreenwriter of Do you want to be John Malkovich? And the orchid thiefseems to be about everything and nothing, the human condition that shapes a couple’s casual dialogues, played by Jessie Buckley And Jesse Plemons (the power of the dog). But, after all, it is a psychological thriller, and moreover, very disturbing.

The young people go to his family’s home so that he can meet his parents. The girl’s story is changing, with the one constant of an idea in her mind: “I think about the end.” What’s happening at home also changes, moving from present to past in flashbacks, and the story tapers off as audiences wonder if the end will be love, life or what else.

In this dizzying reflection on human shortcomings and loneliness, the snowstorm is the least uncomfortable and threatening thing that the protagonists experience. Toni Collette And David Thewlis (landscape architects) offer, like Buckley and Plemons, great performances.
